ERISIPELOID

Erysipeloid (swine erysipelas, creeping erythema) is an acute slowly developing infectious skin lesion related to occupational diseases and usually resulting from a penetrating wound during manual processing of animal products. Purple-red, clearly defined rashes localized on the fingers and hands are noted. May be complicated by arthritis. In rare cases, severe endocarditis develops with damage to the aortic valve.

The main pathogens

Erysipelotrix (E.rhusiopathiae) is a ubiquitous gram-positive saprophytic bacillus.

Antimicrobial Selection

Drugs of choice: benzylpenicillin. With endocarditis in large doses.

Alternative drugs: imipenem.

It should be remembered that E.rhusiopathiae is resistant to vancomycin.

  6. EXOGENOUS ALLERGIC ALVEOLITES
    Exogenous allergic alveolitis (synonym: hypersensitive pneumonitis, interstitial granulomatous alveolitis) is a group of diseases caused by intensive and, more rarely, prolonged inhalation of antigens of organic and inorganic dusts and are characterized by diffuse, in contrast to pulmonary eosinophilia, lesions of the alveolar and interstitial structures of the lungs. The emergence of this group

    1. General measures aimed at disconnecting the patient from the source of antigen: compliance with sanitary and hygienic requirements at the workplace, technological improvement of industrial and agricultural production, rational employment of patients. 2.

The prolonged course of pulmonary eosinophilia, as a rule, is the result of under-examination of the patient in order to identify its cause. Besides the reasons

    The combination of dry keratoconjunctivitis, xerostomia, and chronic polyarthritis was described in such detail by the Swedish ophthalmologist Shegren (Shegren, 1933) that soon attracted the attention of clinicians from different countries to this very peculiar clinical phenomenon, although isolated observations of such a triad or individual manifestations of secretory glandular insufficiency were previously described.
