Cystic dilatation within the lacrimal gland is thought to be related to chronic inflammation and scarring of the lacrimal gland ductules. We review the literature and discuss a case and of lacrimal duct cyst suppuration presenting with visual loss, external ophthalmoplegia, proptosis and ptosis. To our knowledge, only one other report of a lacrimal ductal cyst abscess has been reported in the literature so far.
Of the 1081 children admitted during the study period, 317 (29.3%) met the inclusion criteria and were recruited, of whom 195 (61.5%) and 122 (38.5%) were male and female respectively. The median age was 18 months with an interquartile range of 9 to 36 months. Of the 317 children, 251 (79.2%) were below or equal to 36 months of age. The prevalence of bacteremia was 6.6%. A higher prevalence of bacteraemia was observed in children below 36 months than in those ≥ 36 months (7.5% vs. 3.0%, p = 0.001). Predictors of bacteraemia were an axillary temperature of >38.5 °C (OR =7, 95% CI = 2.2 - 14.8, p-value = 0.0001), a positive malaria slide (OR =5, 95% CI = 3.0 - 21.2, p-value = 0.0001) and a high neutrophils' count (OR =21 95% CI = 5.6 - 84, p-value = 0.0001). Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae accounted for 7 (33.3%) and 6 (28.6%) of all the isolates respectively. Others gram-negatives bacteria were Citrobacter spp 2 (9.5%), Enterobacter spp 1 (4.25%), Pseudomonas spp 2 (9.5%), Proteus spp 1 (4.25%) and Salmonella spp 1 (4.25%). These isolates were highly resistant to ampicillin (95%), co-trimoxazole (90%), tetracycline (90%), gentamicin (80%), augmentin (80%), chloramphenicol (65%), ceftriaxone (35%), cefotaxime (35%) ciprofloxacin (30%), amikacin (30%), ceftazidime (25%) and norfloxacine (10%).

Periorbital infections after strabismus surgery are rare. We describe the first reported case of necrotizing group A streptococcal infection of the conjunctiva and Tenon's capsule complicating uneventful strabismus surgery in a 23-month-old boy, successfully managed with conservative intraoperative debridement and with targeted local and systemic antibiotics.

This was a randomized, investigator-blinded, controlled study in pediatric patients (age 1-15 years) with clinical and radiographic signs and symptoms of acute rhinosinusitis. Patients were allocated to receive either cefditoren (8-12 mg/kg daily) or amoxicillin/clavulanate (80-90 mg/kg amoxicillin daily) for 14 days. Changes in sinus symptoms were assessed daily by patients or their parents using a quantitative symptom score (the S5 score). Rates of improvement, the primary efficacy measure, were also evaluated by the study investigators 7 and 14 days after the initial visit. Secondary outcome measures included time to improvement, adverse effects, and rates of relapse (assessed at days 21 and 28) and recurrence (assessed at day 60) of sinus symptoms. Relapse was defined as a subjective rating of lack of improvement at day 21 or 28 in a patient rated as improved on day 14, and recurrence was defined as sinus symptoms lasting for >or=10 days during the second month of follow-up in a patient rated as improved on day 28. Time to improvement was defined as the number of days between the initial visit and the time at which caregivers noted an improvement in patients' symptoms. Adverse events were monitored by parents/caregivers using a self-administered questionnaire and were also elicited by telephone contact.

A 17-year-old schoolboy was admitted to hospital because of one-sided pelvic pain of uncertain aetiology and fever gradually rising over several days. Bacteriological analysis of blood cultures, skeletal scintigraphy and computed tomography revealed sacroiliitis caused by Salmonella cholerae-suis. Specific antibiotic treatment quickly stopped all symptoms and cured the infection. Radiologically there remained sclerosis of the sacro-iliac joint.

Pharmacokinetic parameters after oral administration of 500 mg amoxicillin, 125 mg potassium clavulanate and 625 mg of their combination (augmentin) were determined in a randomized crossover study in ten healthy volunteers. The absolute bioavailability of amoxicillin (AUCoral/AUCi.v.) was 0.70 +/- 0.12. The mean maximum serum concentration of amoxicillin was 6.5 +/- 1.6 mg/l after administration alone and 6.5 +/- 1.4 mg/l after administration in combination. The respective values for potassium clavulanate were 3.4 +/- 1.4 mg/l and 2.8 +/- 1.1 mg/l. With both substances there was no significant difference between the pharmacokinetic parameters after administration alone and in combination. The AUC for amoxicillin was 19.5 +/- 5.4 h x mg/l after administration alone and 23.2 +/- 10.6 h x mg/l after administration in combination. The respective value for potassium clavulanate were 7.8 +/- 3.2 h x mg/l and 7.3 +/- 2.0 h x mg/l.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the most commonly used antimicrobial treatments in odontogenic infections in children and adolescents on the basis of pharmacokinetic/ pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) criteria.

Continued surveillance of the antimicrobial susceptibilities of S. pneumoniae is necessary. A larger scale investigation is needed to identify if the 7 or 9-valent conjugate pneumococcal vaccine is appropriate for Chinese children.

The aim of this study was to examine the subgingival microflora associated with failing implants, and to determine their susceptibility to commonly used antibiotics in periodontal therapy and dental practice. Thirteen partially edentulous patients with 19 failing implants were selected. Clinical examination included probing depth, attachment level, gingival index, plaque index, and radiographic analyses. Two subgingival plaque samples were taken from each failing implant and analyzed for microbial composition. Fusobacterium nucleatum, Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Prevotella intermedia were the prevalent cultivable microflora. Antimicrobial susceptibility of isolates was determined by the agar dilution technique. Antibacterial activity of penicillin G, amoxicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate, and the combination amoxicillin-metronidazole was significantly higher than with other antibiotics tested. These data indicated that the commonly-used antibiotics were highly effective against bacteria isolated around failing implants, which would suggest the use of these antibiotics to control peri-implant infections.
Acute sinusitis is a common upper respiratory tract infection worldwide, which can be severely complicated if inappropriate treatment is applied. The aim of this study was to assess and compare efficacy of cefuroxime and co-amoxiclav in the treatment of acute sinusitis in an Iranian sample population.
