Severe bacterial skin infections.

An Bras Dermatol 2020 Jul - Aug;95(4):407-417. Epub 2020 May 16.

Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade Estadual Paulista, Botucatu, SP, Brazil. Electronic address:

The severe bacterial diseases discussed herein are those that present dermatological lesions as their initial manifestations, for which the dermatologist is often called upon to give an opinion or is even the first to examine the patient. This review focuses on those that evolve with skin necrosis during their natural history, that is, necrotizing fasciitis, Fournier gangrene, and ecthyma gangrenosum. Notice that the more descriptive terminology was adopted; each disease was individualized, rather than being referred by the generic term "necrotizing soft tissue infections". Read More

Ecthyma gangrenosum without bacteremia in a 54-year-old woman with heart transplant.

Transpl Infect Dis 2020 May 12:e13319. Epub 2020 May 12.

Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, Wake Forest Baptist Health, Winston-Salem, NC, USA.

Ecthyma gangrenosum is a cutaneous manifestation of severe systemic pseudomonas infection and is commonly associated with bacteremia. It is common in immunocompromised patients with underlying neutropenia or leukopenia. We report a patient with heart transplant who developed a single lesion of ecthyma gangrenosum in the absence of bacteremia with a review of reported cases in solid organ transplant patients.

The skin and soft tissue infections in hematological patients.

Curr Opin Infect Dis 2020 Apr;33(2):101-109

Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Health Sciences DISSAL, University of Genoa.

Purpose Of Review: Skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) in patients with hematological malignancies are frequent, but dedicated epidemiological studies are limited. The aim of this review is to provide updated description of the main etiological agents, differential diagnosis, and treatment.

Recent Findings: In addition to common causes of bacterial skin infections in any kind of patients, such as streptococci and staphylococci (the letter frequently resistant to methicillin), Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a frequent agent in patients with hematological malignancies, with high virulence and typical infection presenting as ecthyma gangrenosum.

The color of skin: purple diseases of the skin, nails, and mucosa.

Clin Dermatol 2019 Sep - Oct;37(5):528-547. Epub 2019 Jul 17.

The Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology, New York University School of Medicine, New York, New York, USA. Electronic address:

The color purple can be seen in several types of eruptions including inflammatory dermatoses like lichen planus, infectious dermatoses like ecthyma gangrenosum, neoplasms like Kaposi sarcoma, and vasculitis and vasculopathy. The current review focuses on the clinical appearance, pathophysiology, and treatment of several vasculitides and vasculopathies including capillaritis, cutaneous small-vessel vasculitis, immunoglobulin A (IgA) vasculitis, cryoglobulinemia, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, microscopic polyangiitis, polyarteritis nodosum, warfarin-induced skin necrosis, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, purpura fulminans, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, calciphylaxis, levamisole-induced vasculopathy, and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. Dermatologists play a central role in treating patients with cutaneous vasculitis and vasculopathy and may have the opportunity to facilitate identification of systemic disease by diagnosing cutaneous vasculitis and vasculopathy.

Office of Human Research, Memorial Healthcare System, Hollywood, FL, USA.

BACKGROUND Ecthyma gangrenosum is an uncommon cutaneous infection commonly caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa affecting typically immunocompromised patients. The presence of ecthyma gangrenosum can be associated with severe systemic infection often with a fatal prognosis. Most cases of ecthyma gangrenosum occur around the axilla, buttocks, and limbs; the scrotum is rarely affected. Read More

A Novel Gene Mutation in a Child With Atypical X-Linked Agammaglobulinemia and Recurrent Hemophagocytosis: A Case Report.

Front Immunol 2019 20;10:1953. Epub 2019 Aug 20.

Department of Pediatrics, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan.

X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA), caused by a mutation in the Bruton's tyrosine kinase () gene, is rarely reported in patients with recurrent hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). This mutation leads to significantly reduced numbers of circulatory B cells and serum immunoglobulins in patients. Therefore, they exhibit repetitive bacterial infections since infancy, and immunoglobulin (Ig) replacement therapy is the primary treatment. Read More

Ecthyma gangrenosum (EG) is a potentially lethal skin infection, most commonly due to with bacteremic dissemination and affecting mostly immunocompromised patients. We present two cases of EG in two men in Belgium recently admitted to our hospital, caused by a suspected coinfection by group A and , with a cutaneous dissemination, in which multiple impetigo lesions were the portal of entry. The first patient had no risk factors nor immunodeficiency, but the second was a homeless man with drug and alcohol abuse and advanced HIV infection. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Venereology & Leprology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Jodhpur, India.

Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) gel is a new second generation platelet concentrate, which has been widely used in various dermatological conditions such as nonhealing diabetic foot ulcers, venous ulcers, and trophic ulcers in leprosy. In this case report, we present a patient with nonhealing ulcer secondary to ecthyma gangrenosum, who showed dramatic response with PRF gel. This case suggests a role of PRF gel in nonhealing ulcers of infectious etiology which has not been described in English language literature. Read More

An Bras Dermatol 2017 Sep-Oct;92(5):698-700

Department of Dermatology, University Hospital "Dr. José Eleuterio González", Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León - Monterrey, México.

Ecthyma gangrenosum is a rare skin infection classically associated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. We performed a retrospective study of all cases diagnosed with ecthyma gangrenosum from 2004-2010 in a university hospital in Mexico (8 cases, 5 female patients and 3 male patients, ages between 4 months and 2 years). The most common risk factor for ecthyma gangrenosum is neutropenia in immunocompromised patients. Read More

Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a ubiquitous Gram-negative bacillus characterized by its greenish color and sweetish smell, is at the origin of potentially severe forms of dermatosis, such as ecthyma gangrenosum which marks immunosuppression or reveals blood-poisoning, especially in children. It frequently colonizes chronic wounds and serious burns, and spongiotic or acantholytic dermatosis, especially when severe or localized in skinfolds. It requires special care because of its high resistance to antibiotics and antiseptics. Read More
