Splenic abscess due to Brucella spp. is extremely rare. We report a case of a splenic abscess due to Brucella spp. in a 61-year-old male patient. Brucella slide and tube agglutination tests (Wright) were positive while blood culture and culture from splenic tissue yielded negative results. The abdominal ultrasonography revealed a hypoechoic intrasplenic mass 15x12 mm in diameter at the middle portion of the spleen. The splenic lesions disappeared after prolonged treatment for 7 months with a combination of doxycycline, and rifampicin, followed by TMP-SXT. Brucella spp. should be considered in the differential diagnosis of splenic abscess in countries where brucellosis is endemic. The results of this case and literature review shows that a conservative approach using optimum antibiotics alone without surgical intervention can be successful in the treatment of patients with splenic brucellosis.
We conducted a population-based cohort study of serious blood and skin disorders requiring hospitalization among otherwise healthy users of co-trimoxazole at Group Health Cooperative and Puget Sound (GHC).

desensitization to co-trimoxazole, comprising trimethoprim (T) 0.4 mg and sulphamethoxazole (S) 2 mg initially with doubling dose daily, full strength co-trimoxazole (T/S 160 mg/800 mg) at 10 days. Patch testing with 4.5% and 9% co-trimoxazole in yellow soft paraffin, CMI Multitest.
The antibacterial activity of the four possible combinations of the three drugs, colistin, sulphamethoxazole, and trimethoprim, has been investigated with Gram-negative bacteria. All of the strains examined, with the exception of the strains of Proteus, were sensitive to colistin. The combination of colistin and sulphamethoxazole was synergic against all 141 sulphamethoxazole-sensitive bacteria out of a total of 164 organisms against which it was tested. The sensitive strains comprised 27 of the 37 Esch. coli, 51 of the 54 Ps. aeruginosa, 24 of the 30 Kl. aerogenes, eight of the 12 shigellae, and all 21 Proteus and 10 salmonellae tested. The combined effect was indifference against the remaining 23 organisms which were resistant to sulphamethoxazole. The combination of colistin and trimethoprim was synergic against all 72 organisms against which it was tested, which comprised 10 Esch. coli, 14 Ps. aeruginosa, 14 Kl. aerogenes, 12 Proteus spp, 10 salmonellae, and 12 shigellae. The combination of sulphamethoxazole and trimethoprim was synergic against 61 of the same 72 organisms; the exceptions were three Esch. coli, four Kl. aerogenes, and four shigellae, all of which were sulphamethoxazole resistant. The combination of all three drugs-colistin, sulphamethoxazole, and trimethoprim-was more active than combinations of any two against 66 of the 72 organisms. The exceptions were three strains of Esch. coli, two of Kl. aerogenes, and one shigella, all of which were sulphamethoxazole resistant.

233 (17%) of 1373 participants with HIV and 40 (1%) of 4601 HIV-uninfected household members died. During the first 16 weeks of ART and co-trimoxazole, mortality in HIV-infected participants was 55% lower than that during co-trimoxazole alone (14 vs 16 deaths per 100 person-years; adjusted hazard ratio 0.45, 95% CI 0.27-0.74, p=0.0018), and after 16 weeks, was reduced by 92% (3 vs 16 deaths per 100 person-years; 0.08, 0.06-0.13, p<0.0001). Compared with no intervention, ART and co-trimoxazole were associated with a 95% reduction in mortality in HIV-infected participants (5 vs 27 deaths per 100 person-years; 0.05, 0.03-0.08, p<0.0001), 81% reduction in mortality in their uninfected children younger than 10 years (0.2 vs 1.2 deaths per 100 person-years; 0.19, 0.06-0.59, p=0.004), and a 93% estimated reduction in orphanhood (0.9 vs 12.8 per 100 person-years of adults treated; 0.07, 0.04-0.13, p<0.0001).

In recent years, viridans streptococci have been reported with increasing frequency to cause infections in neutropenic cancer patients. Streptococcus mitis, one of the species included among viridans streptococci, is the most resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics in this group. Bacterial meningitis presenting without pleocytosis in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is rare, and this situation could be confusing to physicians. It is also an uncommon infectious complication in leukemic patients with neutropenia. In patients with leukopenia caused by myelosuppression after chemotherapy, bacterial meningitis must be considered a possibility when a patient develops meningeal signs, even if no pleocytosis is found in the CSF. We report on a 6-year-old boy with leukemia and neutropenia who developed sepsis and meningitis caused by S. mitis with high-level resistance to penicillin and cephalosporins (MIC of both, >2 mg/l); he was a long-term survivor receiving chronic trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole prophylaxis. The patient was successfully treated with a combination of vancomycin, ceftriaxone, and granulocyte-colony-stimulating factor.

Bacterial meningitis remains an important infection globally, with the greatest burden in children in low-income settings, including Papua New Guinea (PNG). We present serotype, antimicrobial susceptibility and outcome data from paediatric meningitis patients prior to introduction of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) in PNG, providing a baseline for evaluation of immunisation programs.

Intravenous TMP-SMZ was used to treat 19 infectious episodes in 18 patients ranging in age from 3 weeks to 13 years. Thirteen patients with various soft tissue or skeletal infections caused by Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus. Streptococcus pyogenes, or Acinetobacter anitratus were successfully treated. Three children with four episodes of CSF shunt infections due to coagulase-negative staphylococci were treated successfully also. The only treatment failures were in two newborn infants with enteric gram-negative bacterial ventriculitis. TMP-SMZ was given at a daily dose of 10 and 50 mg/kg, respectively, every six hours. The drug was administered intravenously for a mean duration of 10 days (range 4 to 32); in 11 patients this was followed by oral administration for a mean of nine days (range 2 to 18). Half-life of TMP after intravenous administration was 5 1/4 hours; that of SMA was 8 1/2 hours. Levels determined three to four days after starting therapy were generally higher than levels obtained at corresponding times after the first dose. CSF/blood TMP and SMA ratios, determined in four patients, were 0.6 and 0.5, respectively. Side effects were observed in 14 patients, and neutropenia was the most common adverse reaction. Intravenous TMP-SMZ is an effective antimicrobic agent in the treatment of infections due to susceptible organisms. The frequent side effects, although reversible and of no major clinical consequence, suggest that future use of TMP-SMZ should be monitored closely.

We describe the occurrence of antibiotic-associated pseudomembranous colitis in two cases of Henoch Schonlein purpura. We discuss the potential diagnostic difficulties and suggest that Henoch Schonlein purpura may predispose to the development of antibiotic-associated pseudomembranous colitis.
