Periocular non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection after autologous fat transfer with micro-needling and fractional radiofrequency skin resurfacing.

Orbit 2022 Jun 24:1-3. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Consultants in Ophthalmic and Facial Plastic Surgery, P.C, Southfield, MI, USA.

A 59-year-old woman with prior bilateral lower eyelid autologous fat transfer, subdermal micro-needling and fractional radiofrequency skin resurfacing presented with delayed left-sided preseptal cellulitis with small multinodular abscesses unresponsive to oral outpatient antibiotic regimens and inpatient intravenous antibiotics. Wound culture revealed infection treated successfully with a 4-month regimen of clarithromycin and tedizolid without recurrence. This case highlights (1) the need for vigilance and a broad differential in delayed post-operative wound infections including non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections, (2) resolution of infection without recurrence on clarithromycin and novel tedizolid oral antibiotic therapy, and (3) that caution should be exercised when performing combination autologous fat transfers with subdermal micro-needling procedures as the breakdown in skin integrity may potentiate infection.

Hematic Pseudocyst Masquerading as Orbital Cellulitis and Sinusitis.

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2022 Jan-Apr;13(1):265-269. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Department of Ophthalmology, University of Colorado, Aurora, Colorado, USA.

Hematic pseudocysts are fibrous, nonepithelial lined capsules containing blood byproducts that typically present remotely following orbital fracture hardware implantation. Trauma, implant migration, and tissue erosion are believed to cause hemorrhage to pool within the capsular space. Risk factors include inadequate posterior fracture reduction and use of nonporous material which prevents fibrovascular ingrowth and stabilization. Read More

Drug Induced Diabetes Mellitus (DIDM) in Pediatric Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia: Approach to diagnosis and management.

J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2022 Jun 7. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Department of Endocrinology, Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh.

Corticosteroids and l-asparaginase used in the treatment of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) can cause drug-induced diabetes mellitus (DIDM). DIDM can lead to dyselectrolytemia, a higher risk of infections including cellulitis, bacteremia, fungemia, and a higher incidence of febrile neutropenia and may have an impact on the outcome of ALL. Literature on the management of DIDM among children with ALL is sparse and the diagnostic criteria for pediatric diabetes should be carefully applied considering the acute and transient nature of DIDM during ALL therapy.

Outpatient parenteral antibiotic therapy (OPAT) and inpatient treatment strategies for emergency department patients with cellulitis: a cost analysis.

CJEM 2022 Jun 8. Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Clinical Epidemiology Program, Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON, Canada.

Objectives: Emergency department (ED) patients with cellulitis requiring intravenous antibiotics may be treated via outpatient parenteral antibiotic therapy (OPAT) as opposed to hospitalization. The primary objective was to compare healthcare costs for the following strategies: community intravenous antibiotics with referral to an OPAT clinic operated by infectious disease specialists ('OPAT clinic' strategy); community intravenous antibiotics with return to ED if necessary ('return to ED' strategy); and hospital admission.

Methods: Using a hospital administrative database, we conducted a cost analysis using patient-level data of adult cellulitis patients presenting to two tertiary care EDs and were treated with intravenous antibiotics in one of three ways: OPAT clinic strategy; return to ED strategy; and hospital admission.
