Enterococcus Faecalis


Presentation

  • Present study showed that the ace genes do not seem to be necessary nor sufficient for the production of biofilm in Enterococcus faecalis but the presence of asa1, efaA, esp, and ebpR correlates with increased biofilm formation of dental root canal isolates[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • We report a rare case of Enterococcus faecalis meningitis in an 11-year-old child with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Weight Loss
  • We describe a 75-year-old male patient who developed a general syndrome, with a fever of 39 degrees C, weight loss, and cervical pain, during the month following a urological procedure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Intravenous Drugs
  • This report describes the treatment of a 35-year-old male who presented to the emergency department with an empyema, and who had a long hospital course complicated by a catheter-related bloodstream infection and a history of intravenous drug use.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Systolic Murmur
  • In the intensive care unit, the patient became febrile and developed a new 2/6 systolic murmur. Blood cultures grew E. faecalis, and the patient was given antibiotics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Corneal Opacity
  • After 3 rounds of intravitreal antibiotics injection, the vitreous opacity disappeared on ultrasonographic finding but corneal opacity and corneal neovascularization still remained.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Flushing
  • The root canal contents were sampled by flushing and the collected washings were plated on an appropriate culture medium, which was incubated for 48 h at 35 C   2.0.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Cesarean Section
  • Although the pathogenesis of this case remains unclear, it could be due to bacteremia arising from the administration of prophylactic broad-spectrum antibiotics used for cesarean section.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Atelectasis
  • Computed tomography (CT) of the chest revealed a large unilateral pleural effusion, compressive atelectasis, and no evidence of consolidation. Culture of the pleural fluid grew Enterococcus faecalis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pericardial Effusion
  • Echocardiography 3 weeks later showed persistent resolution of the pericardial effusion. This case shows that prompt diagnosis and drainage of the pericardial effusion are vital to achieve a positive outcome in purulent pericarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hyponatremia
  • The patients, who presented with fever and delirious behavior, exhibited hyponatremia and markedly elevated interleukin (IL)-6 in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum. Enterococcus faecalis was detected in the urine culture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
ST Elevation
  • During a cervical laminectomy, the patient had a non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction that was treated conservatively. In the intensive care unit, the patient became febrile and developed a new 2/6 systolic murmur.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • Parasympathomimetics, immunosuppression and plasmapheresis have considerably improved management and prognosis of myasthenia gravis. Side effects of these measures, however, may complicate the course of the disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Reasons for not performing colonoscopy were poor clinical status or prognosis irrespective of colonic disease or refusal of the patients or relatives.[revespcardiol.org]

Etiology

  • There have been rare case reports in previously healthy children and rarer are the cases with double etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These secondary diseases are mainly caused by etiological pathogens from endodontic origin, especially Enterococcus feacalis and Candida albicans.[eurekaselect.com]

Epidemiology

  • Speculating that this region-wide epidemiological event may have originated from animal-based food, we initiated this work to provide an overview of the epidemiology of E. faecalis, with a particular focus on the possible link between E. faecalis clones[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • Elevated CSF IL-6 levels suggest that remote activation of intracerebral immune response through the immune-neuroendocrine pathway might play an important role in the pathophysiology of MERS.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
