1/12. porphyromonas gingivalis bacteremia and subhepatic abscess after renal transplantation: a case report.

    A uremic patient developed subhepatic abscess, porphyromonas gingivalis bacteremia and cytomegalovirus viremia after a renal transplantation in mainland china. P. gingivalis infection has been reported to cause gingivitis and periodontitis. bacteremia due to P. gingivalis, however, has not been reported in the literature. We report herein a case of subhepatic abscess and bacteremia due to P. gingivalis in a renal transplant recepient who was treated successfully with the well functioning renal graft.

2/12. Rapidly expanding lung abscess caused by legionella pneumophila in immunocompromised patients: a report of two cases.

    We describe two cases of lung abscess caused by legionella pneumophila in immunocompromised patients. The first case had been treated initially with 60 mg prednisolone for ulcerative colitis, and L. pneumophila serogroup 1 was isolated from sputum samples after cavitation of the lung lesion. The second case was diagnosed as plasma cell lymphoma at post-mortem examination. L. pneumophila serogroup 5 was isolated from the contents of lung abscess, together with enterococcus faecium and prevotella intermedia in the post-mortem examination. lung abscess caused by Legionella is unusual. Here, we discuss the difficulty of diagnosis of legionellosis in patients with unusual chest radiographic findings.

3/12. One case of gram-negative anaerobic spondylodiscitis with prevotella intermedia.

    We report the case of a 45-year-old woman with spondylodiscitis at L1/L2, communicating with paravertebral, intravertebral and bilateral psoas abscesses. Percutaneous computed tomography (CT)-guided abscess drainage and an intravenous antibiotic therapy with imipenem were performed. After removing the drainage at 2 weeks, the patient was discharged at 4 weeks with normalized blood parameters, normal temperature, and without need for analgesics. The underlying bacterium in the case was a very rare gram-negative anaerobic bacterium: prevotella intermedia.

4/12. Soft-tissue abscess involving actinomyces odontolyticus and two Prevotella species in an intravenous drug abuser.

    skin and soft-tissue infections in intravenous users comprise a variety of microorganisms and anaerobic bacteria are frequently involved in these suppurative infections. A case of subcutaneous abscess into anterior femoral muscles involving actinomyces odontolyticus and two Prevotella species (Prevotella buccae and prevotella melaninogenica) in an intravenous drug abuser is presented. This combination of microorganisms has not previously been described in soft-tissue infections. The patient volunteering that he licked his hypodermic needle prior to cocaine injection supports that the implicating bacteria originated from the oral cavity. Eventually, the patient recovered and at a 6-month follow-up a gradual improvement of his subcutaneous infection was noticed.

6/12. Lemierre's syndrome: Porphyromonas asaccharolytica as a putative pathogen.

    A case of Lemierre's syndrome is reported in which metastatic abscesses resulted from septic thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein secondary to bacterial pharyngitis. A 32-year-old male suffering from a painful left-sided neck mass, sore throat, and fever was admitted to our hospital. Computed tomography revealed thrombosis of the left internal jugular vein, septic pulmonary emboli, and a liver abscess. blood culture showed Porphyromonas asaccharolytica. Although empyema occurred transiently during the treatment, the patient recovered following prolonged antimicrobial therapy. Although Fusobacterium species are a well-known cause of Lemierre's syndrome, cases in whom Porphyromonas species was isolated have scarcely been reported. Moreover, case reports from japan have been few.

7/12. Isolation of porphyromonas gingivalis strain from tubal-ovarian abscess.

    An unusual case of involvement of porphyromonas gingivalis is described. Two anaerobic isolates, identified as fusobacterium nucleatum and P. gingivalis, were recovered from the pus of a tubal-ovarian abscess in a 35-year-old woman. Identification of the P. gingivalis isolate was confirmed by randomly amplified polymorphic dna fingerprinting.

8/12. Extragenital infection due to mobiluncus mulieris. Case report and review.

    mobiluncus species are uncommonly isolated from nongenital sites. We report a case of abdominal abscess with associated mobiluncus mulieris bacteremia and review the literature on extragenital infections due to mobiluncus species.

9/12. Impaired vocal cord mobility in the setting of acute suppurative thyroiditis.

    BACKGROUND: Acute suppurative thyroiditis is an increasingly rare entity, accounting for less than 0.1% of thyroid surgery. This is the first report in the literature of acute thyroiditis causing a unilateral reversible vocal cord paralysis. methods: A 41-year-old woman was initially seen with a unilateral vocal cord paralysis resulting from acute suppurative thyroiditis. RESULTS: The vocal cord paralysis resolved following surgical drainage of the thyroid abscess and treatment with intravenous antibiotics. CONCLUSIONS: We present this case to emphasize the need for a complete and thorough head and neck exam including preoperative documentation of vocal cord mobility.

10/12. The rim sign in hepatic abscess: case report and review of the literature.

    We studied a previously healthy patient who presented with a 3-wk history of fever, flu-like symptoms and abdominal pain. methods: blood cultures were positive for escherichia coli. A computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a 2-cm low-density focus in the right hepatic lobe. A technetium-99m-mebrofenin scan showed a photopenic area in the right hepatic lobe surrounded by a rim of activity greater than the adjacent parenchymal activity. RESULTS: gallbladder visualization was normal and the diagnosis of hepatic abscess was made. CT-guided percutaneous drainage of the lesion yielded six cc of pus, the culture of which grew E. coli, Prevotella and bacteroides fragilis. drainage and a 6-wk course of intravenous antibiotics were followed by clinical improvement and resolution of the abscess by CT. CONCLUSION: The rim sign and its possible mechanism of causation in hepatic abscess are discussed in this report, together with a review of the literature.
