Multiple recurrent postoperative spinal infections due to an unrecognized presacral abscess following placement of bicortical sacral screws: case report

Postoperative wound infections in spinal surgery remain a common problem to diagnose and treat successfully. This article describes a patient who underwent L3-U2013S1 laminectomy and pedicle screw fixation, using bicortical sacral screws. The remaining bone tracts of the bicortical sacral screws used during the initial lumbar surgery revealed a significant presacral absces, which was the source of persistent bacterial seeding.

A spinal epidural abscess due to Streptobacillus moniliformis infection following a rat bite: case report

The authors discuss the case of a 40-year-old man suffering from an epidural absces in the thoracic spine due to a rarely found pathogen, Streptobacillus moniliformis, the causative agent of rat bite fever, and Streptobacillus moniliformis, a rarely isolated pathogen. S. moniliformis, the etiological agent, was identified by 16S rRNA-based polymerase chain reaction and sequencing, as well as by culture and mass spectrometry. The patient recovered to full recovery from the absces and neurological recovery, with penicillin G therapy, who regained his bladder-filling sensation and free walking ability.

Hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae infection presenting as endocarditis and liver abscess

This case illustrates the case of infectious endocarditis in a patient with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus who had a clinical manifestation of liver absces. Hypervirulent K. pneumoniae was isolated from blood culture of the patient and carried the plasmid borne key virulence markers: rmpA and rmpA2 with enterobactin, type 3 fimbriae, and ST3321, unusual clone of Hypervirulent K. pneumoniae. Multiple mobile vegetations were found attached to the mitral valve and the posterior wall of left ventricle in transthoracic Echocardiography, according to transthoracic Echocardiography.
