  • The patient presented to the emergency department in a comatose condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 70-year-old man on hemodialysis for end-stage kidney disease due to polycystic kidney disease presented with hip pain on extension and a high C-reactive protein level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Hybridization studies revealed that vanA was present in Ea1 and suggested that it was located on a high-molecular-weight plasmid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Aspiration
  • The patient experienced full recovery after early needle aspiration of the abscess and surgical treatment of the primary focus. Linezolid was selected as a first-line antimicrobial drug.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Culture of the aspirated pus yielded growth of gram-positive cocci identified as E avium, an infrequent pathogen of human infections. The association of E avium with brain abscess further extends the clinical spectrum of this rare pathogen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • On day 6 of hospitalization, E. avium was isolate from ear discharge and aspirates of brain abscess culture.[icjournal.org]
  • From the aspiration of the hip, E. avium was isolated which, though sensitive to penicillin G, amoxycillin, imipenem, erythromycin and ciprofloxacin, was resistant to cefazolin, ceftriaxone and netilmicin.[kundoc.com]
  • She underwent a computed tomography-guided percutaneous aspiration of the residual pancreatic pseudocyst, which yielded the growth of VREA, pansusceptible Escherichia coli, and Klebsiella pneumoniae.[journals.lww.com]
Pneumonia
  • She underwent a computed tomography-guided percutaneous aspiration of the residual pancreatic pseudocyst, which yielded the growth of VREA, pansusceptible Escherichia coli, and Klebsiella pneumoniae.[journals.lww.com]

Recurrent Abdominal Pain
  • The EntTuf reaction confirmed that the isolated DNA was from an Enterococcus sp. and that the DNA had no inhibitors of PCR reactions. 6 CASE REPORTS Case 1 The patient was a 63-year-old Caucasian female who was admitted for recurrent abdominal pain.[journals.lww.com]

Hip Pain
  • A 70-year-old man on hemodialysis for end-stage kidney disease due to polycystic kidney disease presented with hip pain on extension and a high C-reactive protein level.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suggestibility
  • Hybridization studies revealed that vanA was present in Ea1 and suggested that it was located on a high-molecular-weight plasmid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These results suggest dissemination of resistance genes among both genetically related and unrelated strains. Copyright 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. and International Society of Chemotherapy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These observations suggest that E. avium bacteremia most often originated from a gastrointestinal tract source.[mayoclinic.pure.elsevier.com]
  • The presence or absence of PBP 6* did not correlate with penicillin susceptibility; however, PBP 7 demonstrated many features suggestive of low penicillin-binding affinity and may represent a possible mechanism for the relative resistance of this species[aac.asm.org]
Renal Insufficiency
  • We chose to avoid the use of nitrofurantoin secondary to her renal insufficiency. Treatment with linezolid and exchange of the Foley catheter were successful.[journals.lww.com]

Treatment

  • The patient experienced full recovery after early needle aspiration of the abscess and surgical treatment of the primary focus. Linezolid was selected as a first-line antimicrobial drug.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Although anti-microbial treatments have played a crucial part in the control of foodborne infections in the past, the emergence and spread of anti-microbial resistance render the existing treatments ineffective.[books.google.es]
  • Treatment of brain abscess is.done by.a team approach; adequate abscess drainage and appropriate antimicrobial therapy are most important for proper treatment.[icjournal.org]
  • Treatment with linezolid and exchange of the Foley catheter were successful. She remained afebrile and without suprapubic discomfort for several weeks before she had expired.[journals.lww.com]
  • The antimicrobial activity of E. avium PA1 CFS at pH 5.5 completely disappeared with the proteolytic enzyme treatment, but its action was unaffected by catalase or lysozyme.[aem.asm.org]

Etiology

  • Although E. avium is not commonly associated with brain abscesses, it should be considered as an etiological agent in the future, especially in patients diagnosed with chronic otitis media.[icjournal.org]
  • This indicates that E. faecalis isolates expressing HLR-A stand as major etiological agents of enterococcal infections in our community. It is worth highlighting that HLR-Ge was detected in 5 isolates of E. faecium and in one of E. avium .[scielo.br]
