Workup

Pericardial Effusion
  • Echocardiography revealed the large amount of pericardial effusion, and he was admitted to test the cause of pericardial effusion without high fever, tachycardia, and shock vital signs. On the third day, he suddenly presented vital shock.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • In addition, the combined BA and EDTA treatment retained its antimicrobial effect against E. coli O157:H7 for at least 6 cycles of treatment over 6 days at room temperature (22 C).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment with doxycycline was based on the susceptibility panel and local resistance patterns.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The spectrum of treatment options includes systemic medical therapy, local injection with methotrexate and/or potassium chloride, surgery, or a combination of these modalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • After initial treatment as C. difficile colitis, a stool sample revealed Escherichia coli O157:H7 infection. Antibiotic therapy was stopped due to the risk of lysis-mediated toxin release, but unfortunately, the patient continued to deteriorate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this study, we report the emergence of high-level TIG resistance in a longitudinal series of XDR E. coli isolates collected during TIG treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
