Ninety-five children during the first period and 238 during the second were included. In the children with non-perforated appendicitis, no postoperative infectious complication occurred in 74 children during the first period versus two out of 153 (1%) during the second period. In cases of perforated appendicitis, postoperative infectious complications occurred two cases (10%) during the first period versus nine (11%) during the second. There were no significant differences between the two periods.

Thirteen nosocomially significant, gentamicin- and methicillin-resistant (GRMR) Staphylococcus aureus isolates, all of phage group III/M (lysotype 42E/47/53/54/75/77/83A/84/85/94/96), were uniformly resistant against augmentin, erythromycin, fosfomycin, gentamicin, methicillin, oxacillin, penicillin G, tetracycline, and tobramycin, but differed in susceptibility to cefamandole, ciprofloxacin, clindamycin, imipenem, josamycin, the synthetic chinolone Ro 23-6240, and ofloxacin. All isolates were susceptible to chloramphenicol, coumermycin, fusidic acid, novobiocin, rifampin, teicoplanin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (cotrimoxazole), and vancomycin. One isolate was of intermediate susceptibility to netilmicin. On a weight-for-weight basis, the 7 most active drugs were rifampin, coumermycin, cotrimoxazole, novobiocin, teicoplanin, fusidic acid, and vancomycin (in decreasing order) in terms of minimal inhibitory concentrations. With regard to minimal bactericidal concentrations, coumermycin, rifampin, vancomycin, teicoplanin, cotrimoxazole, ofloxacin, and ciprofloxacin (in decreasing order) were the 7 most potent antimicrobial drugs. Freshly defibrinated human blood [65% (v/v)] combined with chloramphenicol and rifampin, respectively, resulted in a weak additive effect (time kill curves). Indifferent effects were observed following combination of blood with ciprofloxacin, cotrimoxazole, coumermycin, fusidic acid, imipenem, netilmicin, novobiocin, ofloxacin, compound Ro 23-6240, teicoplanin, and vancomycin. Rifampin combined with novobiocin, teicoplanin, and vancomycin, respectively, in the presence of 65% (v/v) human blood, resulted in an additive effect. Combinations of rifampin with 9 other antimicrobial drugs in blood yielded essentially indifferent effects.

Included in this multicenter randomized trial were 413 patients, ranging in age from 6 months to 7 years, who had recurrent AOM (at least 3 episodes in the previous 6 months or 4 episodes in the previous 12 months) and/or had failed antibiotic therapy for AOM within 14 days of enrollment. Diagnosis required evidence of acute inflammation and otoscopic findings of middle ear effusion; baseline tympanocentesis was optional and encouraged. Children were randomly assigned (2:1) to 10 days of oral therapy with gatifloxacin suspension (10 mg/kg of body weight once daily) or amoxicillin/clavulanate suspension (45/6.4 mg/kg/d in 2 divided doses).
From 1986 to 1991, 602 patients with melioidosis were seen in Sappasitprasong Hospital, Ubon Ratchatani, Thailand. The in-hospital mortality was 42%. Of 118 adult patients followed long-term, 27 (23%) had culture-proven relapses of melioidosis (3 relapsed twice), a relapse rate of 15% (95% confidence interval [CI], 11-22) per year. The median time from discharge to relapse was 21 weeks (range, 1-290). In 44% of patients, relapses included septicemia, and 27% died. Patients with severe disease (multiple foci of infection or septicemia) relapsed 4.7 times (95% CI, 1.6-14.1) more frequently than patients with localized melioidosis. Underlying disease was not a risk factor, but initial parenteral treatment with ceftazidime reduced the risk of relapse 2-fold (95% CI, 1.1-3.4). Relapses were 3.3 (95% CI, 1.4-9.0) times more frequent following short-course (< or = 8 weeks) oral coamoxiclav than after the oral combination regimen of chloramphenicol, doxycycline, and cotrimoxazole. Longer oral treatment with either reduced relapse 1.6-fold (95% CI, 1.2-1.9). The optimum choice and duration of antibiotic treatment to prevent relapse in melioidosis remain to be determined.

A case of thoracic actinomycosis manifest as round shadow in the lung is described. Diagnosis was based on the presence of actinomycetes in a transthoracic lung biopsy sample. Treatment for 3 months resulted in recovery. No relapse was documented during 1 year follow-up period.

Perimandibular abscesses require drainage and removal of the underlying cause of infection. Traditionally drainage was established extraorally, but this can be associated with delay to treatment, because this is done under general anaesthesia. Between July 2008 and June 2013, 205 patients were initially either treated by immediate intraoral incision under local anaesthesia or extraoral incisions under general anaesthesia and prospectively evaluated. Predictors of treatment outcomes and complications were analysed. Fewer secondary procedures were needed for patients with primary treatment under general anaesthesia (p < 0.0001), but the overall stay in hospital was shorter after initial treatment under local anaesthesia (p < 0.0001, Odds Ratio (OR) 0.72, 95% CI 0.62-0.85). Postoperative complications occurred significantly more often under general anaesthesia (p < 0.0001, OR = 16.63, 95% CI 5.59-49.5). Significant prognostic variable was the administration of amoxicillin combined with clavulanic acid (p = 0.016, OR = 1.24, 95% CI 1.09-1.41) and adverse prognostic factors were infections with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) (p = 0.048, OR 17.45, 95% CI 1.02-298) or diabetes mellitus (p = 0.003, OR 10.39, 95% CI 2.23-48.41). Amoxicillin combined with clavulanic acid showed a significant impact on the treatment course of patients with perimandibular abscesses.

A cross-sectional study was conducted at University of Gondar Teaching Hospital from March 22 to April 30, 2011. Mid stream urine samples were collected and inoculated into Cystine Lactose Electrolyte Deficient medium (CLED). Colony counts yielding bacterial growth of 105/ml of urine or more of pure isolates were regarded as significant bacteriuria for infection. Colony from CLED was sub cultured onto MacConkey agar and blood agar plates. Identification was done using cultural characteristics and a series of biochemical tests. A standard method of agar disc diffusion susceptibility testing method was used to determine susceptibility patterns of the isolates.

Acute Otitis Media (AOM) is the most frequent respiratory tract infection of infancy and childhood that is treated with antimicrobial agents. The most common causative pathogens include Streptococcus pneumoniae, Hemophilus influenzae and Moxarella catarrhalis, and therefore antibacterial management should target against these isolates. Cefaclor, a congener of cephalexin monohydrate, is a semisynthetic cephalosporin antibiotic. It is an orally active cephalosporin which has demonstrated activity against a wide range of organisms in vitro. Present study is designed as a multicentric prospective trial to study and compare the efficacy and safety of cefaclor versus amoxicillin + clav in children with acute otitis media. One hundred and sixty seven patients were evaluated for efficacy endpoints in the cefaclor arm comprised of 104 males and 63 females with a mean age of 5.74+/-2.80 years and 185 patients in the amoxy-clav group comprised of 118 males and 67 females with a mean age of 4.93+/-2.92 years. Both cefaclor and amoxy-clav caused a significant improvement in all the signs and symptoms after a 10-day treatment period. However, between-the-group comparisons showed that the reduction in most of the symptoms was significantly more in cefaclor arm as compared to amoxicillin-clav arm. The clinical success (clinical cure + improvement) at the end of therapy was significantly more in cefaclor arm: 98% with cefaclor versus 85% with amoxicillin + clav, p<0.05 Table 3. Failure cases were prescribed other antibiotics according to the culture sensitivity reports, as rescue medication. Bacterial eradication rates were largely consistent with clinical responses. Bacteriological eradication was seen in 95% of patients in cefaclor group and 78% of patients in amoxicillin + clav group. In conclusion, cefaclor is a well tolerated and effective antibacterial option for acute otitis media in children and it is superior to the combination of amoxicillin + clav in efficacy and tolerability in acute AOM. Moreover, its expanded spectrum of activity, ability to achieve adequate concentrations in tissues, suitability for twice-daily dosing, and proven tolerability suggest that it is a good alternative to agents traditionally used in acute otitis media.
