Asymptomatic
  • Presently and after being discharged from the hospital nutrition unit, the patient follows a normal diet and remains asymptomatic.[revistanefrologia.com]
Aspiration
  • Patients had E. gallinarum isolated from knee aspirates, confirmed by biochemical testing, and compared by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis.[idsa.confex.com]
Abdominal Pain
  • The Chilaiditi sign consists of the interposition of one part of the colon between the liver and the diaphragm and in the presence of symptoms is called Chilaiditi syndrome. 4 The most common symptoms of all are abdominal pain, vomiting, and constipation[revistanefrologia.com]

Psychomotor Retardation
  • retardation, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with home oxygen therapy and chronic renal failure on hemodialysis and with multiple vascular complications.[revistanefrologia.com]

Workup

Pneumoperitoneum
  • Entities like the pneumoperitoneum have X-ray expressions that are similar to Chilaiditi syndrome ( Fig. 1 ), and this is the reason why in patients on peritoneal dialysis the diagnosis may go unnoticed easily.[revistanefrologia.com]
Clostridium Perfringens
  • ., Clostridium perfringens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella typhimurium. One of the four pathogenic strains of Escherichia coli isolated from the intestinal tract of ostrich was inhibited by enterocin 012.[scholar.sun.ac.za]
  • Four cases were associated with 2 other organisms: E. coli plus K. pneumoniae, K. pneumoniae plus Clostridium perfringens, P. aeruginosa plus Staphylococcus aureus , and Klebsiella oxytoca plus C. freundii .[academic.oup.com]
Gram-Positive Coccus
  • This Gram positive coccus is most frequently found in pairs and short chains of spherical or ovoid cells. It is catalase negative and exhibits facultatively anaerobic metabolism.[vumicro.com]
Citrobacter Koseri
  • koseri, Acinetobacter baumannii, Enterococcus intermedius , and E. faecium (1 patient each).[academic.oup.com]

Treatment

  • Several choices for current, and possibly future, treatment of VRE infection are described below. 14 Two agents, linezolid (LZD) and quinupristin-dalfopristin (QPD), have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of infections caused by VRE; however,[uspharmacist.com]
  • Intravenous linezolid was used again and the course of treatment was extended to 3 weeks. Fever faded on the third day of the treatment.[journals.lww.com]
  • Forty days after finishing treatment there was slightly turbid fluid (leucocyte recount 355 cells/μl, PMN 66 per cent, MNM 34 per cent) and E. gallinarum was isolated; the same treatment was initiated with identical response from was observed.[revistanefrologia.com]

Prognosis

  • Therefore, there is no detailed evaluation about its prognosis at present. The prognosis of the 6 reported patients is optimistic and the clinical symptoms are significantly improved. This case reminds us that EGM may occur in the neonate .[journals.lww.com]
  • Therefore, there is no detailed evaluation about its prognosis at present. The prognosis of the 6 reported patients is optimistic and the clinical symptoms are significantly improved. This case reminds us that EGM may occur in the neonate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The course of linezolid generally lasts 3 weeks or longer, and the prognosis is good. We recommended a 3-week course of linezolid and obtained satisfactory efficacy.[bmcinfectdis.biomedcentral.com]

Etiology

  • In conclusion, a proper bacteriological diagnosis is of paramount importance for the guidance of therapy due to the possibility of an uncommon etiology as in this case.[scielo.br]

Prevention

  • The study also found that these diseases can be suppressed or even prevented with an antibiotic or vaccine specifically designed to destroy these bacteria.[newsweek.com]
  • We conducted an investigation to identify risk factors, determine the source of the infections and prevent future cases. Methods We conducted a retrospective cohort study, identifying all TKA patients at Hospital A during January 1-August 31, 2006.[idsa.confex.com]
