Patient Appears Acutely Ill
  • Patients appear acutely ill, and fever is common. Physical examination reveals skin changes that progress from an erythema to a blue-grey discoloration. Bullous changes in the skin may be present in advanced disease.[glowm.com]

Workup

  • The diagnostic workup of a patient with suspected TSS starts with a complete physical examination to investigate signs of multiorgan involvement. A pelvic examination is performed, which includes the removal of a tampon if one is present.[glowm.com]

Pathophysiology

  • The pathophysiology of SPT is outlined by Virchow's triad: Venous stasis Injury to the vascular epithelium A hypercoagulable state These factors explain why SPT is almost always a puerperal event that is most commonly diagnosed after postcesarean endomyometritis[glowm.com]

Prevention

  • Immediate drainage is imperative to relieve increased tension and prevent development of osteomyelitis of the distal phalanx.[mhmedical.com]
  • The incision should not cross the distal interphalangeal joint flexion crease (to prevent formation of a flexion contracture from scar formation) or penetrate too deeply (to prevent spread of infection from violating the flexor tendon sheath).[orthopaedicsone.com]
