Isolated Splenic Cold Abscesses in an Immunocompetent Individual.

Oman Med J 2018 Jul;33(4):352-355

Department of Internal Medicine, PGIMER, Chandigarh, India.

Tubercular splenic abscess is extremely rare, but are reported commonly in HIV-positive and immunocompromised patients along with miliary or disseminated tuberculosis. Isolated tubercular splenic abscess in an immunocompetent individual is rarely reported. Here we present a case of a young, immunocompetent male with isolated splenic cold abscesses, who was diagnosed with splenic tuberculosis and managed successfully with percutaneous drainage and anti-tubercular therapy alone.

Population genomics of hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae clonal-group 23 reveals early emergence and rapid global dissemination.

Nat Commun 2018 07 13;9(1):2703. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Victoria, 3010, Australia.

Severe liver abscess infections caused by hypervirulent clonal-group CG23 Klebsiella pneumoniae have been increasingly reported since the mid-1980s. Strains typically possess several virulence factors including an integrative, conjugative element ICEKp encoding the siderophore yersiniabactin and genotoxin colibactin. Here we investigate CG23's evolutionary history, showing several deep-branching sublineages associated with distinct ICEKp acquisitions. Read More

A Spectrum of Entities That May Mimic Abdominopelvic Abscesses Requiring Image-guided Drainage.

Radiographics 2018 Jul-Aug;38(4):1264-1281

From the Department of Radiology, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, 1250 E Marshall St, PO Box 980615, Richmond, VA 23298.

A variety of entities may mimic drainable abscesses. This can lead to misdiagnosis of these entities, unnecessary percutaneous placement of a pigtail drainage catheter, other complications, and delay in appropriate treatment of the patient. Types of entities that may mimic drainable abscesses include neoplasms (lymphoma, gallbladder cancer, gastrointestinal stromal tumor, ovarian cancer, mesenteric fibromatosis, ruptured mature cystic teratoma, recurrent malignancy in a surgical bed), ischemia/infarction (liquefactive infarction of the spleen, infarcted splenule), diverticula (calyceal, Meckel, and giant colonic diverticula), and congenital variants (obstructed duplicated collecting system).

Splenic granuloma: Melioidosis or Tuberculosis?

J Family Med Prim Care 2018 Jan-Feb;7(1):271-273

Department of General Medicine, Christian Medical College, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, India.

Melioidosis well known as a 'great mimicker' is caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei. Even though majority of the patients present with acute infection, around 18 % can present as chronic infection. These latent foci of infection may reactivate to cause fulminant infection at a later date. Read More

Splenic abscess complicating endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography.

Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent) 2018 Jul 25;31(3):317-318. Epub 2018 Apr 25.

Department of Medicine, Baylor Scott and White Temple, Temple, Texas.

We present a case of splenic abscess as a probable complication following endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Based on a literature review, there have been 11 documented cases of splenic injury following ERCP; however, only one of those involved splenic abscess. Proposed mechanisms of injury and abscess are likely a combination of complicating factors, including manipulation of the endoscope in patients with a history of chronic pancreatitis and/or previous abdominal surgeries.
