11/34. psoas abscess: case report and review of the literature.

    Psoas muscle abscess is rare and presents a diagnostic challenge requiring a high index of suspicion. We report an unusual case of primary psoas abscess caused by proteus mirabilis. Primary psoas abscess is most commonly present in children and is usually caused by staphylococcus aureus. A total of 434 cases of psoas abscess has been reported. The subject is discussed noting the differences between primary and secondary cases, and emphasizing the importance of ultrasound and computerized tomography guided drainage of psoas abscess. A flow chart for the evaluation and management of primary and secondary abscess is presented, taking into consideration the success rate of the various methods of treatment described in the literature.

12/34. Nephrobronchial fistula. Case report.

    A 26-year-old woman presented with a six-year history of right staghorn calculus and pyonephrosis. Intravenous pyelography showed a non-functioning right kidney and chest radiography, an elevated right hemidiaphragm and fluid in the right costaphrenic space. At operation a nephrobronchial fistula was found, and nephrectomy and subdiaphragmatic drainage of the lung abscess was carried out. culture of the pus grew proteus mirabilis. The patient made an uneventful recovery and was discharged on the sixteenth day after operation.

13/34. infection of a renal cyst, a rare complication of bronchopneumonia.

    The authors report a rare case of abscess developed in a solitary renal cyst and observed just after the resolution of a bronchopneumonia. The modern imaging techniques, sonography and computed tomography, permitted an exact diagnosis, and subsequent surgical treatment brought to a complete recovery.

14/34. medullary sponge kidney and staghorn calculi.

    We describe a 65-year-old female with bilateral staghorn calculi who presented with a proteus mirabilis perinephric abscess secondary to a ruptured lower pole hydrocalyx. Radiologic evidence was consistent with underlying medullary sponge kidney (MSK) disease. Despite expectations to the contrary, MSK, a disease notable for many risk factors capable of precipitating staghorn disease, is rarely associated with coexistent staghorn calculi. A discussion of the concurrent risk factors and a possible hypothesis regarding the lack of coexistence follows.

15/34. bacteremia and subcutaneous abscess caused by proteus penneri in a neutropenic host.

    proteus penneri bacteremia and concomitant subcutaneous infection developed in a neutropenic patient with acute lymphocytic leukemia. The skin infection occurred while the patient was being treated empirically with cefoperazone and metronidazole. This case demonstrates the invasive potential of this microorganism in the proper setting.

16/34. Recurrent meningitis: a case report.

    A 25-month-old girl is described who experienced three successive attacks of purulent meningitis due to proteus mirabilis. Third generation cephalosporins were employed as treatment. Cranial radiography and computed tomography revealed a malformation, in the form of an epidermoid cyst, in a central occipital position; small cerebellar abscesses were also present. The lesion was removed by surgery which led to a complete recovery.

17/34. Formation of perinephric abscess following extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy.

    We report 2 cases of perinephric abscess formation following extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL). Possible mechanisms and preventative measures are discussed.

18/34. brain abscess as a cause of infant hydrocephalus. Case report.

    The authors report on a case of hydrocephalus caused by brain abscess in a four-months-old girl. After repeated punctures and antibiotics administration extirpation of abscess was necessary. The child recovered with only slight neurological deficit.

19/34. Modern presentations of Bezold's abscess.

    The use of antibiotics in suppurative otitis media has greatly diminished the incidence of complications. Deep neck abscess arising from acute mastoiditis, a disease thoroughly described by Frederick Bezold early in this century, has become rare. In the last three years we have treated five cases of deep neck abscess of otogenic origin at our hospital. These cases exemplify Bezold's classic description in their site of origin in the mastoid process and route of spread in the neck. However, our contemporary examples differed in clinical setting, latency of onset, and bacterial cause. In four of the cases, delay in diagnosis occurred because of failure to recognize the disorder. Computed tomography has proved valuable in the anatomic diagnosis and surgical planning. Renewed familiarity with the clinical presentations and pathogenesis of this now uncommon condition may prevent delay in diagnosis and initiation of therapy.

20/34. Splenic abscess as a complication of percutaneous nephrostomy.

    We report a case of splenic abscess as a complication of percutaneous nephrostomy tube placement. The patient was a sixty-three-year-old man suffering from a recurrence of transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder after cystectomy and neobladder substitution. Computed tomography of the abdomen identified the abscess, which was drained percutaneously. The patient's condition improved dramatically, and computed tomography showed complete resolution of the abscess two weeks after drainage. Splenic abscess is fatal if untreated and should be considered in a patient in whom sepsis or left lower pulmonary effusion develops after percutaneous manipulation of the kidney.
