Authors:
Zablon Bett

Case Rep Radiol 2020 7;2020:8920178. Epub 2020 Feb 7.

Maseno University School of Medicine, P.O. Box 1777-20200 Kericho, Kenya.

Obturator internus muscle (OIM) abscess occurs rarely in adults. Accurate diagnosis is often hindered and delayed due to the deep location of the abscess and the nonspecific clinical features. Even of rarer occurrence is rupture of the obturator internus muscle abscess into the perirectal space and retroperitoneum causing extensive retroperitoneal necrotizing soft tissue infection.

The role of a sequencing-based clinical intestinal screening test in patients at high-risk for Clostridium difficile and other pathogens: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2019 Jan 15;13(1). Epub 2019 Jan 15.

uBiome, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Background: Hospitalization and antibiotic treatment can put patients at high risk for Clostridium difficile infection, where a disturbance of the gut microbiome allows for Clostridium difficile proliferation and associated symptoms, including mild, moderate, or severe diarrhea. Clostridium difficile infection is challenging to treat, often recurrent, and leads to almost 30,000 annual deaths in the USA alone. Here we present a case where SmartGut™, an at-home, self-administered sequencing-based clinical intestinal screening test, was used to identify the presence of Clostridium difficile in a patient with worsening diarrhea.

Congenital Perirectal Dermoid Cyst: A Rare Cause of Complex, Recurrent Pediatric Fistula-in-ano.

Front Pediatr 2018 16;6:143. Epub 2018 May 16.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Children's Hospital Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA, United States.

Perianal abscess and fistula-in-ano are well-described in the pediatric population. They are most common in infants less than 1 year of age and often resolve with oral antibiotics; occasionally they require drainage or fistulotomy. The etiology is commonly associated with cryptoglandular obstruction and subsequent infection, however alternative diagnoses should be considered in cases of recurrent abscesses and fistulae that are refractory to standard treatments.

Inflammatory bowel disease mimicking granulomatosis with polyangiitis: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2016 Aug 2;10:214. Epub 2016 Aug 2.

Department of Rheumatology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, 5501 Hopkins Bayview Circle, JHAAC Room 1B.13, Baltimore, MD, 21224, USA.

Background: We report a case in which the extraintestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease preceded development of gastrointestinal symptoms by nearly 9 months in the context of an unusual autoantibody panel, mimicking granulomatosis with polyangiitis. This case highlights the intricacies and overlap of autoimmune diseases, and illustrates an interesting clinical phenotype: cytoplasmic anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody positive inflammatory bowel disease with predominantly extraintestinal manifestations. Perinuclear anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody positivity has been frequently reported in association with inflammatory bowel disease, but cytoplasmic anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody positivity is uncommon.

Case Rep Emerg Med 2014 13;2014:817124. Epub 2014 Feb 13.

Center for Policy and Emergency Medicine Research, Oregon Health and Science University, 3181 SW Sam Jackson Boulevard, Portland, OR 97239, USA.

A 12-year-old boy was brought to an urgent care center for fever, back pain, and abnormal gait. In addition to back pain, the patient was found to be persistently febrile but also had decreased perianal sensation and bowel incontinence. He was therefore referred to the emergency department where his back pain improved without medication but he was still febrile with bowel incontinence and persistently decreased perianal sensation.

Phase I trial of neoadjuvant conformal radiotherapy plus sorafenib for patients with locally advanced soft tissue sarcoma of the extremity.

Ann Surg Oncol 2014 May 20;21(5):1616-23. Epub 2014 Feb 20.

Division of Surgical Oncology, UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of California Davis Medical Center, Sacramento, CA, USA,

Background: Despite effective local therapy with surgery and radiotherapy (RT), ~50 % of patients with high-grade soft tissue sarcoma (STS) will relapse and die of disease. Since experimental data suggest a significant synergistic effect when antiangiogenic targeted therapies such as sorafenib are combined with RT, we chose to evaluate preoperative combined modality sorafenib and conformal RT in a phase I/II trial among patients with extremity STS amenable to treatment with curative intent.

Methods: For the phase I trial, eight patients with intermediate- or high-grade STS >5 cm in maximal dimension or low-grade STS >8 cm in maximal dimension received concomitant sorafenib (dose escalation cohort 1:200 twice daily, cohort 2:200/400 daily) and preoperative RT (50 Gy in 25 fractions).

Transperineal ultrasonography as a complementary diagnostic tool in identifying acute perianal sepsis.

Tech Coloproctol 2014 Feb 17;18(2):165-71. Epub 2013 May 17.

Department of Radiology, Innsbruck Medical University, Anichstrasse 35, 6020, Innsbruck, Austria,

Background: Successful anal fistula care in complex cases can be assisted by specialized imaging which accurately defines the site of the internal fistula opening and the fistula type. There are currently limited data concerning the clinical indications for and accuracy of transperineal ultrasound (TP-US) in acute perianal sepsis. The aims of this study were to compare the anatomical interpretation of TP-US images with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and surgical findings in an unselected patient cohort presenting with acute perianal sepsis.

Case report: misdiagnosis of tailgut cyst presenting as recurrent perianal fistula with pelvic abscess.

J Pediatr Surg 2013 Feb;48(2):e33-6

Department of General Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Phoenix, AZ, USA.

Tailgut cysts are uncommon lesions that usually occur within the presacral space. The relative rarity and nonspecific complaints associated with these lesions often lead to misdiagnosis or unnecessary procedures before the correct diagnosis is made. We describe a case of a 16-year-old female who presented with pelvic pain. Read More

The space between: a supralevator abscess caused by perforated diverticulitis.

J Surg Case Rep 2013 Jun 26;2013(6). Epub 2013 Jun 26.

Department of Surgery, Berkshire Medical Center/University of Massachusetts Medical School, Pittsfield, MA, USA.

Supralevator abscesses are the rarest manifestation of anorectal suppurative disease. We report a supralevator abscess in a 60-year-old male whose earliest presentation included poorly localized abdominal and pelvic pain, tenesmus, urinary retention and weight loss, initially treated as diverticular disease based upon imaging and presentation. Progressive symptoms led to the discovery of a pelvic abscess with subsequent percutaneous drainage, later followed by emergent laparotomy, where a single perforated diverticulum was revealed to be the source fistulization.

Candida albicans as the Sole Organism Cultured from a Perirectal Abscess.

Authors:
Daniel Tonetti

Case Rep Infect Dis 2012 29;2012:913785. Epub 2012 Sep 29.

School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, S532 Scaife Hall, 3550 Terrace Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, USA.

Perirectal abscess is a common colorectal condition that may be present with or without a fistula. In most cases where a fistula coexists the organisms cultured are gut-derived organisms whereas skin-derived organisms are more common in patients without fistula formation. Candida albicans, despite being an microorganism often found in the gastrointestinal tract, has not previously been reported as an isolate from a perirectal abscess culture. Read More

Tissue-conserving, yet radical surgery for extensive gas-forming soft tissue infections arising from perirectal abscess: report of a case.

Surg Infect (Larchmt) 2012 Oct 5;13(5):332-5. Epub 2012 Oct 5.

Department of General Surgery, North Middlesex University Hospital National Health Service Trust, Sterling Way, London, United Kingdom.

Background: Perirectal abscess is encountered commonly in surgical practice, and simple incision and drainage usually is sufficient. However, life-threatening sepsis may occur. In such instances, the high morbidity and mortality rates from the severe systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) associated with rapidly evolving necrotizing and gas-forming soft tissue infections are of major concern.
