1/5. Suppurative cervical adenitis caused by opportunist mycobacterium.

    Of 45 consecutive submandibular abscesses treated by external drainage in a district oral surgery unit, four cases, representing nearly 9% of the sample, were caused by opportunist Mycobacterium avian-intracellulare, an organism known to give a poor response to all known antimycobacterial chemotherapeutic agents. Treatment by excision of the diseased tissue is indicated in these cases. The diagnosis and management of these conditions is discussed.

2/5. Purulent pericarditis complicating coronary artery bypass.

    We have described the first survivor with proteus purulent pericarditis after coronary artery bypass. Purulent pericarditis, which must be differentiated from postpericardiotomy syndrome, should be suspected in a patient with fever and pericardial effusion after bypass surgery. pericardiocentesis established the diagnosis of purulent pericarditis. Today, with prophylactic antibiotics being used routinely, purulent pericarditis in the postoperative period may be caused by an aerobic gram-negative bacillus. Treatment consists of surgical drainage and appropriate antibiotics.

3/5. brucella suis: an unusual cause of suppurative lymphadenitis in an outpatient.

    A routine aerobic culture of purulent material from a draining sinus tract of a patient with chronic lymphadenitis yielded growth of a fastidious gram-negative coccobacillus later identified as brucella suis biotype 1. The patient responded to administration of antibacterial drugs and surgical drainage.

4/5. Oral mycobacterium avium complex infection in a patient with hiv-related disease. A case report.

    mycobacterium avium complex infection is a common complication of the later stages of AIDS. Although a recognized cause of oral lesions, atypical mycobacteria are rarely detected in AIDS-related oral ulceration. Here we report a case of oral ulceration in a patient in the later stages of AIDS in which atypical mycobacteria were detected both histologically and microbiologically. The features of this case are similar to the one other case previously reported permitting some characterization and comparison of the clinical features of mycobacterium avium complex infection in AIDS.

5/5. Pyogenic infections due to ochrobactrum anthropi.

    ochrobactrum anthropi is a nonfermentative gram-negative bacillus that has been isolated with increasing frequency from human clinical specimens. Previously, its pathogenic niche was believed to involve the causation of catheter-associated bacteremic illnesses. We describe three cases of pyogenic infection due to O. anthropi, thereby expanding the known pathogenic potential of this organism.
