1/6. Bone cyst of a fishy origin: from an old catfish spine puncture wound to the foot.

    A rare first metatarsal unicameral-type bone cyst with a deceptive radiographic appearance and size and an unusual pathological etiology was identified in a female patient. This eccentric cyst was observed only postoperatively by radiograph. review of the patient's history documented a foot injury from a catfish spine as the etiology of this chronically inflamed cyst.

2/6. pseudomonas infections associated with hot tubs and other environments.

    Infections due to pseudomonas aeruginosa are not confined to the hospital intensive care unit. This paper examines the association of P. aeruginosa and several community-acquired infections. Hot tub folliculitis is a recently described disorder occurring in outbreaks among persons who unknowingly immerse themselves in contaminated whirlpools, spas, or swimming pools. The green nail syndrome and other dermatoses are also reviewed. Infective endocarditis, invasive external otitis, and puncture would osteomyelitis are serious infections that carry high risks for the patient and challenge the physician's most potent therapies.

3/6. Pseudomonas osteomyelitis following puncture wounds of the foot in children.

    Four cases of pseudomonas osteomyelitis following puncture wounds of the foot in children are presented. The infections resolved after drainage of pus and treatment with gentamicin, to which the pseudomonas was sensitive. These kinds of infections are associated with inadequate wound care and since late diagnosis is associated with troublesome morbidity, it is important that casualty officers are aware of the condition.

4/6. Drop foot as a complication of acupuncture injury and intragluteal injection.

    Two cases of peroneal nerve palsy resulting in drop foot are reported. One case involves direct injury to the common peroneal nerve by an acupuncture needle. A second case describes sciatic nerve injury caused by an intragluteal injection. Although acupuncture injury at the spinal cord level and the peripheral nerves of the upper extremity has been documented, peroneal nerve palsy resulting from acupuncture therapy has not been previously reported.

5/6. Multifocal plasmacytoma of hand and foot bones.

    Simultaneous occurrence of localized plasmacytomas of both hands and feet has not been reported so far. Here we report a 40-year old female patient, who had at presentation pain and deformity. Of hands and feet, with numerous cystic lytic lesions of phalangeal, metacarpal and metatarsal bones, detected by x-rays. The biopsy of the affected bone showed moderately differentiated plasmacytoma of lambda light chain type (lambda-LC). serum and urine biochemical analysis revealed the existence of lambda LC monoclonal component. The patient was treated by local radiotherapy and subsequent systemic chemotherapy, which consisted of 3 cycles of the M-2 protocol and 7 cycles of melphalan-prednisone. Five years after the diagnosis, the absence of plasmacytoma was confirmed by puncture biopsy of the left hand phalanx. Monoclonal protein in serum and urine was not detected.

6/6. Calcaneal osteomyelitis caused by nail puncture wounds.

    Plantar puncture wounds to the foot are a common injury. A small number (1.8%) of these puncture wounds become infected and progress to osteomyelitis. The purpose of this article is to report the cases of six patients who developed osteomyelitis of the calcaneus after a puncture wound to the heel caused by a nail. The characteristics of the patients, the pathogenic organism, and the outcome were studied. patients who were healthy and had no systemic illness (N = 4) had only one pathogenic organism cultured, whereas patients who had systemic illness (diabetes mellitus, N = 2) had more than one pathogenic organism cultured. The only amputation in this group occurred in a patient with diabetes mellitus. It was concluded that diabetic patients who develop calcaneal osteomyelitis from a nail puncture wound are more likely to have multiple pathogens cultured. Furthermore, if a diabetic neuropathy is also present, the nail puncture wound may be the initial injury leading to a chronic ulceration, increasing the risk of amputation.
