    [Bacterial skin and soft tissue infections].
    Z Rheumatol 2017 Nov;76(9):745-751
    Interdisziplinäre Notaufnahme und Stabsstelle Infektiologie, Universitätsklinikum Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauß-Allee 11, 93043, Regensburg, Deutschland.
    Bacterial skin and soft tissue infections are frequent and represent one of the most important differential diagnoses in patients presenting with reddened and swollen skin and soft tissue. Among these infections, cellulitis (phlegmon), erysipelas and abscesses are the most frequent. Whereas erysipelas is almost exclusively caused by streptococci and can be successfully treated with penicillin, an effective antibiotic therapy targeted at Staphylococcus aureus should be empirically considered for abscesses and phlegmon; other pathogens, such as gram negative and anaerobic bacteria can be found in patients with the corresponding underlying disease and certain risk factors.
