On further evaluation, the abdominal US showed a 3 cm x 4 cm appendicular phlegmon
with minimal fluid leak.
Laparoscopy identified a large phlegmon
compressing on the distal ileum causing obstruction with distended proximal and collapsed distal small bowel loops (Figure 2).
A single case received antibiotics because it was associated with a cervical phlegmon
. As all fractures were not displaced or mildly displaced, none required reduction with titanium plates .
Ultrasound interpreted as BI-RADS 4, suspicious abnormality with differential diagnoses of phlegmon
, malignancy, and calciphylaxis.
Key words: Phlegmon

and inflammation of the inguinal tissues are present, the sensibility and specificity of ultrasonographic examination and fine needle aspiration of inguinal lymph nodes are reduced .
 also observed that sole ulcer and white line disease were the lesions responsible for lameness while another study  demonstrated that the skin lesions, namely, digital dermatitis and interdigital phlegmon
, were the important cause of lameness.
However, at outbreak week 5, certain states, including Michigan, began reporting cases of localized spinal and paraspinal infections, including epidural abscesses, phlegmon
, arachnoiditis, discitis, or vertebral osteomyelitis.

However, differentiating certain soft tissue infections in diabetic foot like cellulitis, phlegmon
and abscess may be difficult.
A follow-up magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed improvement but persistence of pelvic phlegmon
. Cultures of presacral fluid revealed a polymicrobial flora including Escherichia Coli, Enterococcus, Bacillus species and Eikenella Corrodens.
