1/22. 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.

2/22. vancomycin-resistant Enterococci infected puncture wound to the foot. A case report.

    vancomycin is often administered empirically to patients with osteomyelitis, septic arthritis, septic throbophlebitis, infected burns, and cellulitis of the lower extremities when methicillin-resistant staphylococci are suspected, or when a staphylococcus organism is suspected in a penicillin-allergic patient. physicians must be aware of the guidelines established regarding the use of vancomycin to avoid bacterial resistance. physicians also must be aware of the procedures that have been developed to help contain nasocomial outbreaks of vancomycin-resistant Enterococci.

3/22. Tale of a toothpick: eikenella corrodens osteomyelitis.

    Tale of a Toothpick is a case of eikenella corrodens osteomyelitis in a young woman, that resulted from puncture of her foot with a toothpick. The epidemiology, microbiology, common clinical presentations and therapy of E. corrodens are reviewed. A brief summary of the extent of toothpick injuries and their infectious complications are also presented.

4/22. rubber foreign bodies in puncture wounds of the foot in patients wearing rubber-soled shoes.

    We report 8 cases of puncture wound of the foot associated with rubber foreign bodies in patients who were wearing rubber-soled shoes. The difficulty in making the correct diagnosis and the complications arising from these injuries are reviewed. The morbidity associated with these seemingly innocuous puncture wounds can be serious. Infective complications resolved only with removal of all imbedded rubber foreign bodies. A history of wearing rubber-soled shoes during the injury and a high index of suspicion may prevent complications.

5/22. Towards evidence based emergency medicine: best BETs from the Manchester Royal Infirmary. Antibiotics after puncture wounds to the foot.

    A short cut review was carried out to establish whether antibiotics reduce infective complications after puncture wounds to the foot. A total of 29 papers were found using the reported search, of which none answered the question posed. Further research is needed in this area.

6/22. osteomyelitis following puncture wounds of the foot in children.

    review of the laboratory and clinical findings and treatment of eight patients with osteomyelitis of the foot after puncture wounds revealed that: 1) osteomyelitis after puncture wounds is a infrequent but potentially serious complication, with significant morbidity; 2) osteomyelitis is frequently preceded by inadequate primary care for simple puncture wounds, and when treatment is appropriate, osteomyelitis usually can be avoided; 3) P. aeruginosa is the most commonly recovered organism; 4) the clinical presentation is characterized by a lack of systemic toxicity, paucity of laboratory abnormalities, and evidence of a localized infection process and the patient may be asymptomatic for a few days to several months after the injury before presentation of the osteomyelitis; and 5) once the infection has become established, treatment must be aggressive, including surgical debridement.

7/22. "Don't jump on the bed".

    Jumping on the bed is a common childhood behavior. However, little is known about the potential for traumatic injury sustainable as a consequence of this behavior save for an understanding of the risk of injury related to falling from a bed, and a growing body of literature related to trampoline injuries. We report a case of a "grid" wire puncture injury that required a minor incision to affect removal. parents should know about the possibility of this injury secondary to jumping on the bed, and pediatricians should know that the grid wires have hooked ends that may require incision to facilitate their removal.

8/22. Pseudomonal osteomyelitis of the medial sesamoid bone.

    Because osteomyelitis may complicate puncture wounds about the first metatarsophalangeal joint, we believe sesamoid roentgenograms are mandatory. These views may show subtle demineralization, which cannot be seen on standard films. Treatment must include excision of the sesamoid and culture-directed antibiotics.

9/22. klebsiella pneumoniae infection complicating a puncture wound of the foot: a case report.

    klebsiella pneumoniae infections of the feet are rare following puncture wounds. We present a case of such an infection following a nail injury, and stress that there is nothing distinctive about the clinical presentation with this organism and that bacterial cultures and sensitivity tests of isolates are necessary for proper wound management.

10/22. Stingray spine foreign body in the foot.

    An unusual case report of a retained stingray spine foreign body in the foot is presented. The case is interesting in that the foreign body, although visualized on radiograph, was difficult to locate intraoperatively. A review of techniques for localizing foreign bodies in the foot is presented as well as a discussion on stingray injuries in general. Because of the possibility of spine breakage in a stingray puncture wound, radiographs should be considered in injuries of this type.
