1/25. Fatal clostridium sordellii ischio-rectal abscess with septicaemia complicating ultrasound-guided transrectal prostate biopsy.

    clostridium sordellii is a Gram-positive spore-forming anaerobic bacillus rarely encountered in human infection. A case of C. sordellii ischio-rectal abscess with rapidly fatal septicaemia is described which complicated ultrasound-guided transrectal biopsy of the prostate, despite ciprofloxacin prophylaxis. Neither C. sordellii ischio-rectal abscess nor ischio-rectal abscess complicating transrectal biopsy have been reported previously. Judging from our experience and the reviewed literature, the addition of prophylactic anti-anaerobe drugs should be strongly considered until an optimal prophylactic regimen will be defined by randomized controlled trials.

2/25. Stage T1 adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder--complete response after transurethral resection and intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin.

    OBJECTIVE: To report the results of treatment of adenocarcinoma of the urinary bladder with transurethral resection and intravesical bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG). methods: Out of 183 patients in our department treated with BCG between 1992 and 1996, three patients had adenocarcinoma, stage T1. RESULTS: All three patients had normal cystoscopy and negative cytology 53-82 months after the start of treatment. CONCLUSIONS: BCG appears to be effective not only in the treatment of transitional cell carcinoma, but also in adenocarcinoma of the bladder.

3/25. Thoracic empyema associated with recurrent colon cancer: report of a case and review of the literature.

    Many types of infections associated with colorectal cancer have been reported. Here, we describe a rare case of thoracic empyema that was observed during immunotherapy for recurrent colon cancer. culture of the pleural fluid yielded streptococcus bovis, which is known to be associated with gastrointestinal lesions, especially colorectal malignancies. The possible correlation between these two clinical entities-empyema and colon cancer-is discussed.

4/25. A first case of streptococcus bovis bacteremia and peritonitis from endometrial cancer origin.

    BACKGROUND: The most important clinical infections caused by streptococcus bovis are bacteremia and endocarditis. Usually, streptococcus bovis bacteremia has been described in association with bowel pathology. CASE REPORT: A 67-year-old woman with an history of endometrial cancer Ic was admitted with the suspicion of peritonitis at examination. At exploratory laparotomy, a total hysterectomy was performed and the abdomen was drained. histology revealed an uterine adenocarcinoma staged IIIa with intramyometrial cocci accumulation. streptococcus bovis was isolated from the peritoneal fluid cultures and three haemocultures. CONCLUSION: Because we excluded bowel pathology and endocarditis, this is the first case of streptococcus bovis bacteremia from endometrial cancer origin.

5/25. Infectious endocarditis from streptococcus bovis associated with colonic carcinoma: case report and literature review.

    BACKGROUND: Many studies in the literature have warned of the need for investigation of colonic lesions among patients, especially elderly ones, who have bacteremia and/or endocarditis from streptococcus bovis. bacteremia and infectious endocarditis from streptococcus bovis may be related to the presence of neoplastic lesions in the large intestine and hepatic disease. AIM: This report describes a patient who presented infectious endocarditis from streptococcus bovis associated with colonic carcinoma and tubular-villous adenomas. CONCLUSIONS: The finding of this bacterium among patients with septicemia and/or endocarditis is also related to the presence of villous or tubular-villous adenomas in the large intestine. For this reason, complete and detailed investigation of the large intestine must be performed in patients with infectious endocarditis, even in the absence of intestinal symptoms. An increased incidence of this condition or hepatic dysfunction has been reported among patients with infectious endocarditis from streptococcus bovis. patients with infectious endocarditis from streptococcus bovis and normal colonoscopy may be included in the group at risk for developing colonic cancer. The knowledge that there is an association between endocarditis from streptococcus bovis and carcinoma of the colon has important clinical implications. If the lesion can be discovered at an early stage, curative resection may become possible.

6/25. streptococcus bovis endocarditis associated with colonic adenocarcinoma: report of a case.

    streptococcus bovis (S. bovis) endocarditis has been increasing over recent decades, especially among the senile population. A 74-year-old man presented with intermittent fever for two months. He had a past history of aortic dissection and underwent a Bentall operation one year before admission. A Janeway lesion was noted on his right hand and six blood cultures grew S. bovis. He was treated with penicillin-G, 3 microU intravenously, every six hours, and became afebrile three days later. A colonofiberoscopy was carried out despite the absence of any gastrointestinal symptoms, and a 2 x 2 cm mass was found at the cecum, with pathologic proof of adenocarcinoma. The patient died from a massive intracranial hemorrhage on the 23rd hospital day. review of the literature revealed an intimate association between S. bovis bacteremia (or endocarditis) and underlying colonic neoplasia. Failure to be aware of the possible consequences of this combination may lead to detrimental patient prognosis. We strongly advise that every patient presenting with bacteremia or endocarditis due to this organism, even if they are free from gastrointestinal symptoms, should undergo a thorough lower gastrointestinal investigation to rule out colonic neoplasia.

7/25. Non-life-threatening sepsis: report of two cases.

    streptococcus bovis is one of the nonenterococcal species included among the streptococci group D. It is part of the normal bowel flora in humans and animals, but it is also responsible for infectious diseases (10-15% of all cases of bacterial endocarditis). Many cases of bacteremia and metastatic abscesses (spleen, liver, soft tissues, bone, meninges, endocardium) caused by S. bovis were reported as associated with digestive tract diseases, mainly colonic disease, and, in particular colonic neoplasms, or chronic liver diseases. A role in carcinogenesis has been suggested for this microorganism. The authors report two cases of S. bovis sepsis, one associated with colonic neoplasm and the other with liver cirrhosis and gastric carcinoma. Discussion is focused on probable mechanisms that favor gastric colonization and systemic diffusion of S. bovis from the gut in patients with gastrointestinal neoplasms or chronic liver disease and provides clinical recommendations for patients with S. bovis infections.

8/25. cryoglobulinemia vasculitis following intravesical instillations of bacillus Calmette-Guerin.

    Infections and/or immune-mediated reactions may occur after intravesical instillation of bacillus Calmette-Guerin for the treatment of bladder carcinoma. We report herein a cryoglobulinemia vasculitis occurring after intravesical BCG instillation for a superficial papillary transitional cell bladder carcinoma. The patient, an 80-year-old man, presented peripheral ischemia 10 days after the second course of intravesical BCG instillation. Biological evaluation revealed autoimmune thrombocytopenia, hypergammaglobulinemia, low C3 and C4 complement fraction levels related to mixed cryoglobulinemia and lupus anticoagulant. The patient was treated with heparin and prostacyclins with a good outcome. All of the immune anomalies spontaneously regressed within 3 months. To our knowledge, cryoglobulinemia has only been reported once in the literature and lupus anti-coagulant has never been reported as a complication of intravesical BCG instillation.

9/25. Unusual bacterial infections and colorectal carcinoma--streptococcus bovis and clostridium septicum: report of three cases.

    Several types of unusual bacterial infections have been reported in association with colorectal malignancy. In the three cases described, uncommon infections resulted in further workup and subsequent resection for occult colonic malignancy. awareness of this association is critical for early diagnosis and management.

10/25. streptococcus suis endocarditis and colon carcinoma: a case report.

    streptococcus bovis has classically been associated with colorectal carcinomas in literature. Curiously enough, no other Streptococcus species have hitherto been associated with such a malignancy or any other tumors. This report presents a case of early-stage colorectal carcinoma diagnosed in a patient with infection with the related Streptococcus species S suis. A discussion of possible pathogenetic implications follows.
