Abstract Six episodes of pneumococcal peritonitis in five patients with postnecrotic cirrhosis, portal hypertension and ascites are reported. This diagnosis must be considered when fever or abdomin Cited by: A review of the cases reported since , together with the 5 cases we now add, shows that intraabdominal pneumococcal infections due to S. pneumoniae may be broadly stratified into 3 groups: 1) primary peritonitis in patients with preexisting peritoneal disease (usually ascites); 2) peritonitis without prior peritoneal disease, presumed to.
Pneumococcal peritonitis: Related Topics. These medical condition or symptom topics may be relevant to medical information for Pneumococcal peritonitis: Pneumococcal; Peritonitis. Hierarchical classifications of Pneumococcal peritonitis. The following list attempts to classify Pneumococcal peritonitis into categories where each line is subset. Countercurrent immunoelectrophoresis (CIE) is a reliable method for detection of microbial antigens in various body fluids. We describe a case of neonatal pneumococcal peritonitis in which CIE was helpful in detecting microbial antigen in paracentesis fluids. Corresponding bacterial cultures were negative. The usefulness of CIE is by: 5.
Pneumococcal disease is a bacterial infection caused by S. pneumoniae (Streptococcus pneumoniae). It is the most common cause of bacterial pneumonia and middle ear infection (otitis media) in the U.S., and is the third most frequent cause of bacterial meningitis. 1 Pneumococcal bacteria are often found in the upper area of the throat behind the nose in about 5 to 90 percent of healthy. Guidelines for the public health management of clusters of severe pneumococcal disease in closed settings. 5. 1 Introduction. Pneumococcal disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The causative agent, Streptococcus pneumoniae, commonly known as the pneumococcus.

STREPTOCOCCUS PNEUMONIAE is a common pathogen that causes high morbidity and mortality around the world. 1,2 It is the most common cause of community-acquired pneumonia and the second most common cause of purulent meningitis, but intra-abdominal pneumococcal infections are rarely found.
Primary (or spontaneous) bacterial peritonitis occurs mainly in patients with liver Cited by: Primary pneumococcal peritonitis. Bose B, Keir WR, Godberson CV. A case of primary pneumococcal peritonitis in a girl of 9 is presented. The diagnosis was made at laparotomy and confirmed by immediate bacteriological examination.
The condition is extremely rare and accounts for 1 in 5 of all cases of primary peritonitis in by: Pneumococcal peritonitis is a relatively uncommon manifestation of Streptococcus pneumoniae infection (), but nonetheless, a potentially life-threatening one that requires prompt medical attention and treatment with antibiotics and, in some cases, surgery ().

We report a case of primary pneumococcal peritonitis in a young woman with no predisposing features, and we review 26 other cases of pneumococcal peritonitis in previously healthy adults. This disease is very rare in adults without cirrhosis, ascites, nephrotic syndrome, autoimmune disease, or by: Pneumococcal peritonitis is prevalent in children and adults with comorbidities but extremely rare in healthy adults.

What is pneumococcal disease. Pneumococcal disease can cause infections of the ears, lungs, blood, and brain. Pneumococcal disease is an illness caused by bacteria called pneumococcus. It is often mild, but can cause serious symptoms, lifelong disability, or death. Children younger than 2 years old are among those most at risk for the disease.
Primary Pneumococcal Peritonitis Complicated by Exudative Pleural Effusion in an Adolescent Girl By Stan L. Block, Garrett Adams, and Mickey Anderson Louisville, Kentucky A healthy, young adolescent girl developed primary pneumococcal peritonitis, an infection rarely reported in Cited by: 3.
Pneumococcal infections are caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, a gram-positive, catalase-negative organism commonly referred to as pneumococcus. S pneumoniae is the most common cause of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), bacterial meningitis, bacteremia, and otitis media, as well as an important cause of sinusitis, septic arthritis, osteomy.

Invasive pneumococcal disease is defined as an infection confirmed by the isolation of Streptococcus pneumoniae from a normally sterile site (eg, blood, cerebrospinal fluid, and pleural, joint, or peritoneal fluid but not sputum).S.
pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is an important and well-known cause of bacteremia in both immunocompetent and immunosuppressed patients. Pneumococcal peritonitis was diagnosed in a woman with an intrauterine device (IUD), admitted to the hospital with presenting symptoms of septic shock.
The surgical, bacteriological and histological findings are described, and the preferred mode of treatment is by: • Leukocyte count > /ul, 90 percent polymorph suggestive of pneumococcal peritonitis rather than appendicitis.
• Management: Antibiotics and correction of dehydration and electrolyte imbalance • Early laparotomy odourless sticky exudates confirm diagnosis • The prevalence has declined greatly and now its rare.
