spillover infection

spillover infection

An infection that occurs when a relatively confined infection—e.g., meningitis, pneumonia, deep-seated abscesses of liver or kidneys—breaches the vascular space due to enzymes released by neutrophils or other artifice, resulting in bacteraemia.

spillover infection

An infection that occurs when a relatively confined infection–eg, meningitis, pneumonia, deep-seated abscesses of liver or kidneys 'breaks into' the vascular space–due to enzymes released by PMNs, or other artifice–resulting in bacteremia
