Bacterial dermatoses in sports.

Clin Sports Med 2007 Jul;26(3):383-96

Sports Medicine Program, Maine Medical Center, Portland, ME 04101, USA.

Bacterial skin dermatoses are common in athletes, and it is the role of team physicians to be able to recognize and treat such problems. Despite the skin's role as an efficient barrier, a moist environment coupled with frequent skin trauma and contact by athletes with equipment and other players predispose to acquiring infections. In the past 10 years, there has been a dramatic rise in methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections. This article discusses community-acquired MRSA infections among athletes and focuses on the recognition of, management of, and return-to-play guidelines for common bacterial skin infections in athletes. Some of the more unusual bacterial infections that may present in this population are also reviewed.

Proximal biceps tendon rupture, biceps tendinitis, and medical biceps subluxation are injuries that occur alone and in association with other pathologic conditions of the shoulder. The literature describes various strategies for imaging and treating these biceps tendon complex injuries but offers no clear consensus on a gold-standard approach. The keys to successful treatment are an accurate diagnosis, identification of associated pathologic conditions, and assessment of functional limitations of the injury.
