Staphylococcus


Presentation

  • We herein present the case of a 43-year-old male diabetic patient who presented with an aggressive form of infective endocarditis involving the tricuspid, mitral and aortic valves following a gluteal abscess due to infection with Staphylococcus lugdunensis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • According to E-tests, of 19 isolates grown in BHI-V6, four isolates presented MIC 128 µg/ml, seven with MIC ranging from 4 to 8 µg/ml, and eight with MIC 2µg/ml. By broth microdilution, 14 isolates presented MIC 2 µg/ml and five with MIC 16µg/ml.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present report, we describe an efficient cell lysis procedure for S. leei using three passes through a Dynomill with 0.5mm glass beads that results in lysis of more than 95% of the cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract A 67-year-old man presented to orthopaedic care with a painful knee. Workup was consistent with septic arthritis of a native knee, and the patient underwent operative treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Here we present a case of a left lower lobectomy patient that was complicated by pleural effusion and high fever with positive sputum cultures of Raoultella Ornithinolytica and positive pleural fluid cultures of Staphylococcus hominis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Sputum
  • Here we present a case of a left lower lobectomy patient that was complicated by pleural effusion and high fever with positive sputum cultures of Raoultella Ornithinolytica and positive pleural fluid cultures of Staphylococcus hominis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • Workup was consistent with septic arthritis of a native knee, and the patient underwent operative treatment. Cultures from the operating room were speciated to Staphylococcus lugdunensis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Helicobacter Pylori
  • The prototype isolate, Staphylococcus leei, has high urease activity that is similar with respect to a low K(m) value and acid resistance of the urease found in the stomach adapted pathogen, Helicobacter pylori.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Penicillium
  • Several studies tested for extrolite production and confirmed the antibacterial activity of Penicillium species strains isolated in Antarctica ( 44, 46, 48 ).[doi.org]

Treatment

  • This case report emphasizes the importance of familiarity with this emerging pathogen in the treatment of a septic joint.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It was confirmed on blood culture and culture from pus from the epidural abscess and successfully treated using similar treatment as for a Staphylococcus aureus infection - 6 weeks of intravenous flucloxacillin 2 g four times daily with a 6 week follow-on[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Staphylococcus lugdunensis is rarely a clinical specimen contaminant, and its isolation warrants further investigation and concerted treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Most skin infections will heal within a few weeks, but more serious skin infections can take longer to heal if treatment is delayed or if ineffective treatment is given.[sahealth.sa.gov.au]
  • More serious skin infections can take longer to heal if treatment is delayed or if ineffective treatment is given.[health.state.mn.us]

Prognosis

  • One of the major problems in the prognosis of staphylococcal infections is the progressive development of resistance in the Staphylococcus species to multiple antibiotics ( 14 ), e.g., methicillin ( 36, 102 ) and vancomycin ( 23, 84 ), which has, as in[doi.org]

Etiology

  • Abstract The study was performed to assess potential differences in the etiological relevance of two coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS), Staphylococcus haemolyticus and Staphylococcus hominis, in an observational single-center study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • OLIVER 2 1 Department of Food Science, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey 08903 2 Institute of Agriculture, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Tennessee 37901, USA Staphylococcus aureus is an etiological agent of a wide variety of human[doi.org]

Epidemiology

  • Benefits of adding genomics to routine epidemiological MRSA surveillance are unknown. Aim To determine feasibility and potential utility of adding genomics to epidemiological surveillance of MRSA.[eurosurveillance.org]
  • We present a case of a 60-year-old woman with an invasive spinal infection with Staphylococcus pseudintermedius associated with a 15-year-old spinal fixation device and epidemiological contact with dogs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment options should be guided by local epidemiological surveillance data and individual antimicrobial susceptibility test results for each patient’s isolates.[ecdc.europa.eu]
  • Investigación publicada en Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation 1 de noviembre de 2018 Staphylococcus aureus encompasses 2 subspecies ( aureus and anaerobius) with significant differences in their epidemiology and pathogenicity.[visavet.es]
  • Diagnosis and management Epidemiology PHE has carried out mandatory enhanced surveillance of MRSA bacteraemia since October 2005 and of MSSA bacteraemia since January 2011 for NHS acute trusts; patient-level data of any MRSA and MSSA bacteraemias are[gov.uk]

Prevention

  • If you cannot drink enough fluids to prevent dehydration, call your doctor. How Can I Prevent Illness? Wash hands and under fingernails vigorously with soap and water before handling and preparing food.[foodsafety.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: We show that S. lugdunensis has a unique genome profile within staphylococci, with a closed pan-genome and several systems to prevent horizontal gene transfer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Ensuring consistent application of proper infection prevention and control practices, particularly during the insertion and use of medical devices, is crucial for prevention of infections by S. epidermidis .[ecdc.europa.eu]
  • Long-term prevention of golden staph Worldwide measures need to be taken to prevent new resistant strains of S. aureus from emerging .[betterhealth.vic.gov.au]
