Complications associated to group-A streptococcal pharyingitis include non-suppurative complications such as acute rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis and suppurative complications such as peritonsillar or retropharyngeal abscess, sinusitis, mastoiditis, otitis media, meningitis, brain abscess, or thrombosis of the intracranial venous sinuses.

We described a case of a year-old patient with a history of acute pharyngodinia early followed by improvise fever and a progressive formation of a diffuse orbital edema, corneal hyperaemia, diplopia and severe decrease of visual acuity.

The patient was surgically treated with functional endoscopic sinus surgery FESS after the response of a maxillofacial computed tomography scans that showed a pansinusitis complicated by a left orbital cellulites.

Numerous colonies of Streptococcus pyogenes were found in the samples of pus and an antibiotic therapy with meropenem was initiated on the basis of the sensitivity test to antibiotics. The patient was finally discharged with diagnosis enfermevades left orbital cellulites with periorbital abscess, endophtalmitis and acute pansinusitis as a consequence of streptococcal pharyngitis.

The case highlights the possible unusual complication of a group-A streptococcal pharyingitis in a immunocompetent child and the needing of a prompt surgical and medical approach toward the maxillofacial complications associated to the infection.

The emergence of resistance to treatment complicates the public health problem of head-louse infestations and drives the need for continuing development of new treatments. There are limited data on the activity of ivermectin as a topical lousicide. In two multisite, randomized, double-blind studies, we compared a single application of 0.


A tube of topical ivermectin or vehicle control was dispensed on day 1, to be applied to dry hair, left for 10 minutes, then rinsed with water. A total of patients completed the studies. In the intention-to-treat population, significantly more patients receiving ivermectin than patients receiving vehicle control were louse-free on day 2 The frequency and severity of adverse events were similar in the two groups.

A single, minute, at-home application of ivermectin was more effective than vehicle control in eliminating head-louse infestations at 1, 7, and 14 days after treatment. Head-louse infestation stigmatizes hundreds of millions of people worldwide, predominantly children 3 to 11 years of age of all socioeconomic levels.

It is commonly perceived as a sign of poor hygiene, which often engenders excessive management responses e. Medical consequences of infestation can include itching and scratching, which may lead to cutaneous bacterial superinfection i. December 6, at 3: Head and neck cancer is the sixth most common malignancy worldwide.

Tobacco smoking and alcohol consumption are two well known behavioral risk factors associated with head and neck cancer. Recently, evidence is mounting that infection with human papilloma virus, most commonly human papilloma virus is responsible for a subset of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma especially tumors of tonsillar origin.

The molecular pathway used by human papilloma virus to trigger malignant transformation of tissue is different from that of other well known risk factors, i. Apparently, these subsets of patients with human papilloma virus positive tumor are more likely to have a better prognosis than human papilloma virus negative tumor.

Considering this fact, the human papilloma virus infection should be determined in all oropharyngeal cancers since it can have a major impact on the decision making process of the treatment. October 24, at 3: Experience in developed countries has shown that they reduce the incidence of invasive and non-invasive disease.


However, there is evidence that the introduction of PCVs in universal mass vaccination programs, combined with inappropriate and extensive use of antibiotics, could be associated to changes in non-PCV serotypes, including serotype 19A.

We conducted granulomtaosas systematic review to determine the distribution of serotype 19A, burden of pneumococcal disease and antibiotic resistance in the region. We performed a systematic review of serotype 19A data from observational and randomized clinical studies in the region, conducted between andfor children under 6 years. Pooled prevalence estimates from surveillance activities with confidence intervals were calculated.

We included studies in 22 countries and extracted data from These data reported serotyped invasive pneumococcal isolates, 3. Serotype 19A isolates were responsible for 2. This serotype was stable over the twenty years of surveillance in the region. A total of Before widespread PCV implementation in this region, serotype 19A was responsible for a relatively small number of pneumococcal disease cases.

With increased use of PCVs and a greater number of serotypes included, monitoring S.
