Erysipelas or cellulitis with a prosthetic joint .

J Bone Jt Infect 2018 4;3(4):222-225. Epub 2018 Oct 4.

Department of Infectious Diseases, Hospital Universitario de Bellvitge, IDIBELL, Barcelona, Spain.

We describe a case of a 60-year old male who developed an acute prosthetic joint infection (PJI) of the knee, secondary to erysipelas of the lower leg due to beta-hemolytic Group G streptococci. As it is unknown how often this phenomenon occurs in patients with prosthetic implants and which patients are most prone to develop this complication, we analyzed: i) the incidence of the development of a PJI in these patients and ii) the clinical characteristics of streptococcal PJI during an episode of erysipelas/cellulitis. Based on a retrospective analysis of patients with a prosthetic implant presenting at the emergency department with erysipelas/cellulitis, 1 out of 10 patients developed a PJI. Read More

Erysipelatoid Carcinoma.

Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992) 2018 Jun;64(6):492-497

Medical School of Valença - Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brasil.

Erysipelatoid Carcinoma (EC), also known as Inflammatory Metastatic Carcinoma, is a rare form of cutaneous metastasis, secondary to an internal malignancy, more often related to breast cancer. Clinically, the lesion has a well-marked, bound erythematous appearance, much like an infectious process, such as erysipelas and cellulitis, these being the most common differential diagnoses. It is characterized by an acute or subacute appearance with an erythematous plaque, sometimes hot and painful, being more often situated in the primary tumor vicinity, especially in the thorax wall in the region of a mastectomy due to breast cancer.

Microcrystalline Cellulose for Delivery of Recombinant Protein-Based Antigen against Erysipelas in Mice.

Biomed Res Int 2018 11;2018:7670505. Epub 2018 Jun 11.

Biotechnology Process Engineering Center, KRIBB, Cheongju 363-883, Republic of Korea.

The study describes the development of a vaccine using microcrystalline cellulose (Avicel PH-101) as a delivery carrier of recombinant protein-based antigen against erysipelas. Recombinant SpaA, surface protective protein, from a gram-positive pathogen was fused to a cellulose-binding domain (CBD) from endoglucanase II through a S3N10 peptide. The fusion protein (CBD-SpaA) was expressed in and was subsequently bound to Avicel PH-101. Read More

Seasonal and regional patterns of lower leg cellulitis in Western Australia.

Intern Med J 2019 Feb;49(2):212-216

Telethon Kids Institute, University of Western Australia, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Background: Lower leg cellulitis (LLC) is a common infection that is usually caused by Streptococcus pyogenes or other beta-haemolytic streptococci. We hypothesised that in Western Australia (WA), LLC is a summer disease and would be more common in the northern, tropical regions.

Methods: We conducted a statewide data linkage of adult patients presenting to WA hospitals with a first ever diagnosis of LLC, from January 2002 through December 2013 according to the region and season. Read More

Identification of the Chromosomal Region Essential for Serovar-Specific Antigen and Virulence of Serovar 1 and 2 Strains of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae.

National Institute of Animal Health, Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan

causes swine erysipelas, an infection characterized by acute septicemia or chronic endocarditis and polyarthritis. Among 17 serovars, determined based on heat-stable peptidoglycan antigens, serovars 1 and 2 are most commonly associated with the disease; however, the molecular basis for the association between these serovars and virulence is unknown. To search for the genetic region defining serovar 1a (Fujisawa) strain antigenicity, we examined the 15-kb chromosomal region encompassing a putative pathway for polysaccharide biosynthesis, which was previously identified in the Fujisawa strain.

Avian cholera outbreaks threaten seabird species on Amsterdam Island.

PLoS One 2018 30;13(5):e0197291. Epub 2018 May 30.

Centre d'Etudes Biologiques de Chizé, UMR 7372CNRS - Université de La Rochelle, Villiers en Bois, France.

Infectious diseases may be particularly critical for the conservation of endangered species. A striking example is the recurrent outbreaks that have been occurring in seabirds on Amsterdam Island for the past 30 years, threatening populations of three Endangered seabird species and of the endemic, Critically Endangered Amsterdam albatross Diomedea amsterdamensis. The bacteria Pasteurella multocida (avian cholera causative agent), and to a lesser extent Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae (erysipelas causative agent), were both suspected to be responsible for these epidemics.
