In 8 (7%) patients with localized infections
and 37 (77.1%) patients with invasive infections, underlying diseases were recorded in the medical history (Table 3); the difference between the 2 groups was statistically significant (X2 = 72.59, df = 1, p<0.0001).
As of May 6, 2013, these localized infections
, without concurrent meningitis, had accounted for 320 (43%) of the 741 total reported cases.
Significant gross alterations were restricted to the reproductive tract and consisted of exuberant vaginal tissue, bilateral pneumouterus, mucopurulent metritis and vaginitis, with extensive laceration and localized infection
of the externalized vaginal mucosa.
Diagnosis at the early stage of the disease is desirable as the mortality varies at 4-10 per cent in localized infection
, 26-29 per cent in deep extension and 83-94 per cent in disseminated disease (5,6).
The non-septic group included patients classified as non-SIRS, SIRS, and localized infection
. The septic group included patients with sepsis, severe sepsis, or septic shock diagnosed anytime during their stay in ICU.
is more likely to clear up than is deep infection.
The otorrhea is believed to be linked to an associated localized infection
, usually a Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection.
However, since varicella is a herpes virus, it stays alive in the body and can erupt as a localized infection
As a localized infection
, the organism can develop in a decubitus, a surgical wound, a feeding tube site, etc.
Hair acts as foreign body resulting in inflammatory reaction ultimately leading to localized infection
which may manifest as abscess or sinus formation4.
A localized infection
can disseminate via lymphatics in states of immune suppression.
Through these processes, a localized infection
, like osteomyelitis, creates an environment that is favorable to the formation of an adjoining DVT.
