Turquoise Discoloration of Organs on Autopsy Secondary to Treatment of Septic Shock With Methylene Blue.

Cureus 2020 Sep 13;12(9):e10434. Epub 2020 Sep 13.

Pathology, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, Oklahoma City, USA.

Septic shock can result from the dissemination of infections and can lead to hypoperfusion secondary to vasodilation. Methylene blue can help stabilize blood pressure refractory to other measures in shock. We report a case of a 58-year-old male who died of septic shock due to bacteremia secondary to acute folliculitis and epididymo-orchitis. Read More

Clinical features and treatment of epidermal growth factor inhibitor-related late-phase papulopustular rash.

J Dermatol 2020 Feb 5;47(2):121-127. Epub 2019 Dec 5.

Department of Gastrointestinal Medical Oncology, National Hospital Organization Shikoku Cancer Center, Matsuyama, Japan.

Papulopustular rash, an acneiform rash, appears on the seborrheic region during the first to second week of treatment with an epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitor (EGFRi). The rash gradually disappears after the fourth week; however, it persists or newly develops in other regions during EGFRi treatment. Because Staphylococcus aureus is frequently isolated from late-phase papulopustular rash, we assessed the incidence of bacterial infection and treatment outcomes of patients with late-phase papulopustular rash.

Euro Surveill 2019 Sep;24(38)

Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Department of Zoonotic, Food- and Waterborne Infections,, Oslo, Norway.

Despite concerns about infection risks of floating tanks, outbreaks have rarely been reported. In May 2017, an outbreak of skin rash occurred among visitors of a floating tank open for the public in Norway. We assessed the extent and cause of the outbreak and the risk factors for infection in a retrospective cohort study among the visitors of the floating tank using a standardized web-based questionnaire.

Impact of Type III Secretion Effectors and of Phenoxyacetamide Inhibitors of Type III Secretion on Abscess Formation in a Mouse Model of Pseudomonas aeruginosa Infection.

Antimicrob Agents Chemother 2017 11 24;61(11). Epub 2017 Oct 24.

Department of Microbiology/Immunology, Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois, USA

is a leading cause of intra-abdominal infections, wound infections, and community-acquired folliculitis, each of which may involve macro- or microabscess formation. The rising incidence of multidrug resistance among isolates has increased both the economic burden and the morbidity and mortality associated with disease and necessitates a search for novel therapeutics. Previous work from our group detailed novel phenoxyacetamide inhibitors that block type III secretion and injection into host cells In this study, we used a mouse model of abscess formation to test the efficacy of these compounds against the type III secretion system (T3SS).

Service de dermatologie, hôpital d'instruction des armées Sainte-Anne, 83800 Toulon, France. Electronic address:

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

Rubbing skin with nylon towels as a major cause of pseudomonas folliculitis in a Japanese population.

J Dermatol 2015 Jan 26;42(1):81-3. Epub 2014 Nov 26.

Department of Dermatology, Saitama Medical Center, Saitama Medical University, Saitama, Japan.

Pseudomonas folliculitis (PF) is a community-acquired skin infection, which develops after exposure to contaminated water such as whirlpools, swimming pools, water slides and hot tubs. In Japan, this condition has been sporadically reported, often in association with bathing; however, the exact cause of PF in the Japanese population remains unclear. In this study, we retrospectively reviewed 10 patients with PF diagnosed at our dermatology clinic (two males and eight females). Read More

The School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences and the Centre for Marine Bio-Innovation, University of New South Wales,Sydney,New South Wales,Australia.

We developed two dose-response algorithms for P. aeruginosa pool folliculitis using bacterial and lesion density estimates, associated with undetectable, significant, and almost certain folliculitis. Literature data were fitted to Furumoto & Mickey's equations, developed for plant epidermis-invading pathogens: N l = A ln(1 + BC) (log-linear model); P inf = 1-e(-r c C) (exponential model), where A and B are 2.
