Coagulase-Negative Staphylococcus


Presentation

  • The clinical manifestations at presentation, gestational ages, and birth weights were similar in the 2 groups. Thrombocytopenia was present in 26 (84%) neonates with persistent CoNS bacteremia but only in 8 (13%) neonates in the nonpersistent group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Fever of Unknown Origin
  • Due to the deformed cardiac valves, secondary infective endocarditis should be considered in lupus patients with acute refractory heart failure and fever of unknown origin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Aspiration
  • Coagulase-negative Staphylococcus was isolated from shunt reservoir aspirate, and intrathecal vancomycin 10 mg daily was added to the treatment regimen. On day 61, vancomycin was stopped and oral linezolid 600 mg twice daily was started.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Liver Dysfunction
  • Conjunctival MRSA carriers were more likely to have anemia, malignant tumor, liver dysfunction, and dementia, and to be postoperation and chronically bedridden.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Eruptions
  • A superficial pustular eruption with acute onset has been reported in patients with acne vulgaris receiving systemic antibiotic treatment. In all past cases the causative micro-organism was found to be a gram-negative bacterium.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Dermatitis
  • We also investigated the presence of MRSA and MR-CNS in lid skin and conjunctiva of patients with atopic dermatitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Pericardial Effusion
  • Echocardiography and a computed tomographic scan showed the appearance of pericardial effusion. A diagnosis of mediastinitis and composite graft infection was made, and mediastinal drainage and irrigation were performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • There was a reduction in the median number of days of treatment with oxacillin from 11.5 to 6 days (p CONCLUSIONS: Modification of the empiric treatment regimen for neonatal late-onset sepsis with use of oxacillin showed a significant reduction in S.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • This study investigated the TTP of CSF culture with CoNS and its relationship to clinical parameters and prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • This study aimed to investigate etiology, timing, antibiotic susceptibility and risk factors for multidrug resistant (MDR) Gram-positive coccal bacteremia after LT.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epidemiology

  • BACKGROUND: We sought to determine the epidemiological patterns of Staphylococcus bacteraemia, with a focus on the proportion of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (CoNS) as compared to Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia, and the prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • There is evidence that hand hygiene using an alcohol-based gel and wearing gloves during patient care, management of central and peripheral intravenous lines using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, and a closed medication[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The antibiotic susceptibility pattern of all isolates was classified according to the European Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) definition [ 31 ].[journals.plos.org]
