Bacteroides Infection


Presentation

  • A singleton pregnancy of longitudinal lie, cephalic presentation and occipito-posterior position was noted. The fetal heart rate was 150 beats/min.[jcgo.org]
  • Although B. fragilis group is the most common species found in clinical specimens, it is the least common Bacteroides present in fecal flora, comprising only 0.5% of the bacteria present in stool.[americorpshealth.biz]
  • The material discussed in the Materials is not intended to present the only or necessarily the best pediatric method or procedure, but rather presents the approach or opinion of the discussant.[redbook.solutions.aap.org]
  • Snapshot A 25-year-old man presents to the emergency room for pain in his right lower quadrant. He was found to have perforated appendicitis and was immediately taken to the operating room for emergent laparoscopic appendectomy.[medbullets.com]
  • If present, the best match for the respective sample will be reported as a presumptive cfiA positive strain. Not for use in clinical diagnostic procedures.[bruker.com]

Foul Smelling Discharge
  • A foul-smelling discharge is pathognomonic although its absence does not exclude a diagnosis. Several anaerobic culture systems are available. Normal blood agar plates can be used.[virology-online.com]
Turkish
  • The bacterium has been isolated in Turkish women with cervicovaginitis suggesting that etiologic diagnosis of this disease is required to take appropriate preventive and therapeutic measures [ 21 ].[jcgo.org]
Poor Oral Hygiene
  • Although B. fragilis is not generally found as part of the normal oral flora, it can colonize the oral cavity of patients with poor oral hygiene or of those who previously received antimicrobial therapy, especially penicillin.[americorpshealth.biz]

Treatment

  • Moxifloxacin was approved by the FDA for the treatment of complicated skin and skin-structure infections and complicated intra-abdominal infections.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Their isolation requires appropriate methods of collection, transportation, and cultivation of specimens. [2] Treatment is complicated by 3 factors: slow growth, increasing resistance to antimicrobial agents, [3] and the polymicrobial synergistic nature[thehealthscience.com]
  • The isolates were resistant to antibiotic treatments with ampicillin and first generation cephalosporins, but susceptible to vancomycin and gentamicin.[jcgo.org]

Prognosis

  • [Ph.D. thesis] Valpione, Sara (2017) Biomarkers of prognosis and toxicity for metastatic melanoma patients treated with ipilimumab.[paduaresearch.cab.unipd.it]
  • Prognosis Complete recovery should be achieved with the appropriate surgery and antibiotic treatment. Untreated or uncontrolled infections can cause severe tissue and bone destruction, which would require plastic surgery to repair.[encyclopedia.com]

Etiology

  • Bacterial and viral etiology of childhood diarrhea in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. BMC Pediatr. 2013; 13 : 36[ DOI ][ PubMed ] 4. Caceres M, Zhang G, Weintraub A, Nord CE.[jjmicrobiol.com]

  • Discussion Increasing evidence suggests that microbial dysbiosis in the gut may represent an etiological factor in the initiation and progression of colorectal cancer [ 19, 20 ].[journals.plos.org]

Pathophysiology
