Clostridium


Presentation

  • We present a case of C. sordellii bacteraemia and septic shock in an immunocompromised patient who was recently diagnosed with pleomorphic gluteal sarcoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a fatal case of C. septicum-infected aortic aneurysm and a pertinent literature review with treatment suggestions for reducing mortality rates.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Cardiac arrest ensued, and she died within 4 hours of onset of sepsis and within 24 hours of presentation. Wound cultures identified Clostridium novyi.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present the first report of a patient with peritoneal dialysis (PD)-related peritonitis due to Clostridium ramosum, an anaerobe bacterium that is commonly found in normal fecal flora.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a fatal case of a 71-year-old male with abscedation of a caecal carcinoma who shortly after developed a mycotic aneurysm of the infrarenal aorta as a result of a C. septicum infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sighing
  • All genes encoding the sporulation-specific sigma factors SigH (CLJU_c41230), SigF (CLJU_c33950), SigE (CLJU_c12320), SigG (CLJU_c12330), and SigK (CLJU_c12260) are present.[pnas.org]
Renal Injury
  • Abstract We report the unusual case of a 5-year-old male hospitalized for management of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and new-onset type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) who developed acute renal injury secondary to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • We discuss treatment, causes and mechanisms of this rare complication from this treatment and review the bibliography about mechanisms for the different types of immunological reactions that may occur after treatment with collagenase Clostridium histolyticum[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A new study published by our group suggests a new modified shortened protocol that will reduce the cost and duration of treatment without compromising the safety or efficacy of treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • He underwent surgical debridement and treatment course of cefazolin. Although he responded well to these initial treatments, subcutaneous abscess and ulnar osteomyelitis developed 1 month after discharge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This case report discusses the optimal treatment of emergency surgery combined with antibiotic treatment to improve survival.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We believe that these treatments will decrease mortality due to C. septicum-infected aortic aneurysms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Infectious involvement of the aorta and associated vascular structures portends a poor prognosis with a 57% mortality rate. Our case and updated review demonstrates the implications of C. septicum vascular seeding and subsequent treatment outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Metronidazole is currently recommended, and there is some evidence that it is associated with an improved prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • C. difficile is considered the etiologic agent of PMC and the major cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhea in adults, but the attribution of this organism to enteric diseases in children is less clear (Karlsson et al. 2000).[scielo.br]
  • The etiology of NEC is not understood, although bacterial colonization of the gut is believed to play a role Footnote 11 . Clostridium spp. have been particularly associated with more severe cases of NEC Footnote 4 , Footnote 11 .[canada.ca]
  • Spores are rare in cultures of C perfringens, the most common etiologic agent of these diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • Although the epidemiology and clinical characteristics of C. hydrogeniformans infection is poorly understood because of the limitations of currently available conventional methods of identification, clinicians need to consider this organism as a causative[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • Since the metalloproteinase profile and activity of the human gut microbiota remains uncharacterized, we explored whether bacterial-derived proteases might have the potential to contribute to physiological or pathophysiological processes within the gut[doi.org]
