Laryngeal abscess

Laryngeal abscess may be the final stage of phlegmonous laryngitis, but more often it is caused by trauma to the body (fish bone, etc.). An abscess occurs predominantly on the lingual surface of the epiglottis or in the region of one of the cuspid cartilages, usually developing gradually against the background of the general inflammatory response of the body. Complaints come down to pain when swallowing. 2-3 days after the injury, breathing and voice may be impaired due to reactive edema and infiltration.

When laryngoscopy is determined by a limited area of ​​the mucous membrane, in the center of which is visible abscess. The mobility of the epiglottis or scapular cartilage (depending on the location of the lesion) is sharply limited (see
rice 8.1, c).

In the initial (infiltrative) stage of the disease it is necessary to carry out antibacterial and anti-inflammatory therapy ', constantly monitor the respiratory function; when signs of acute progressive stenosis appear, tracheostomy is indicated. Formed infiltrate and abscess should be opened; in the following days, it is recommended to spread the edges of the incision for better emptying of the abscess. Good effect is given by aerosol or inhalation of antibiotics after opening an abscess.

The prognosis is usually good, but there may be dangerous complications in the form of acute stenosis of the larynx, the development of extensive phlegmon.

Laryngeal abscess

    Epidural abscess - an infectious process that develops between the bones of the skull and the outer sheet of the dura mater, may be accompanied by osteomyelitis. Due to the fact that the pathogen easily penetrates through the dura mater along the emissary veins, the epidural abscess is often accompanied by a subdural empyema. The main pathogens most common cause of
  2. Abscess
    Abscess (abscessus), abscess, abscess - a limited cavity filled with pus, formed as a result of focal purulent fusion of tissues. Etiology. The cause of abscesses is the penetration of microorganisms into the tissue when the skin and mucous membrane is damaged and when foreign bodies get into the tissues. They can also be made with therapeutic manipulations (injections, subcutaneous infusions) produced
  3. Zakoplotny and paratonzillary abscesses
    The zakletochny abscess develops as a result of purulent lesions of the deep pharyngeal lymph nodes and loose tissue located in the zaklepharyngeal space. These lymph nodes are regional for the posterior nasal cavity, the paranasal sinuses, the auditory tube, the middle ear, the nasal pharynx, and the tonsils. A zaplottic abscess may be observed in newborns, but
  4. Abscess
    Physical blockage An abscess is a collection of pus in one place. There are hot and cold abscesses. With a hot abscess (it is much more common), the pus accumulates very quickly and all four signs of inflammation appear: swelling, redness, fever and pain. A cold abscess is characterized by a slow accumulation of fluid in one place without signs of inflammation. Emotional
    An abscess is a limited inflammation in the tissues or organs, characterized by the accumulation of pus in the newly formed cavity under the dense membrane. An abscess occurs most often after any mechanical damage to the skin (for example, due to a splinter), through which pyogenic microbes penetrate under the skin (staphylococci, streptococci, blue pus, fungus cryptococci, etc.), causing
  6. Zagothy abscess
    Clinical picture. The pharyngeal abscess is a purulent fusion of the lymph nodes and loose tissue of the swallowed space. Particularly common in debilitated children under the age of 2-3 years, rarely in adults. In childhood, it usually occurs after infectious diseases, acute respiratory viral infections, measles, scarlet fever. In adults, pharyngeal abscesses.
    Clinic. Brain abscess - a limited abscess in the brain tissue - intracerebral, or epidural, subdural. It is called streptococci, staphylococci, pneumococci, etc. Pathogenetically, contact (otogenic), metastatic (pneumonia, lung abscess), bronchiectasis abscesses and abscesses that occur during open cranial brain injuries,
  8. Otogenic intracranial abscesses
    Extradural abscess is called the accumulation of pus between the dura mater and bone. It occurs as a result of the spread of the inflammatory process from the mastoid process and the tympanic cavity into the cranial cavity and is localized in the middle or in the posterior cranial fossa. Extradural abscess is usually a complication of chronic suppurative otitis media; often observed in this case
  9. Paratonsillary abscess (paratonsillitis)
    This disease is also called phlegmonous sore throat. Paratonsillar fiber is located between the tonsil capsule and pharyngeal fascia, the distance between which is normally 0.5–1 cm, and parapharyngeal cellulose behind the pharyngeal fascia, lateral. These spaces are made of fiber, the inflammation of which, and in the final stage, and abscess formation determines the clinic.
  10. Extradural abscess
    Extradural abscess usually has a contact mechanism of occurrence. The source of infection in most cases is osteoperiostitis, a carious process located in the wall of the paranasal sinus, which can occur during their chronic inflammation (frontal, ethmoiditis, sphenoiditis). The onset of the disease is characterized by the occurrence of a limited focus of inflammation in the region of the solid brain
  11. Pelvic abscess
    Pelvic abscess is a congested accumulation of pus in the vesicular-uterine or rectus-uterine space. Such abscesses can form during inflammatory saccular masses in the appendages, as well as in the postoperative period. At the same time, the resulting adhesions delimit the accumulation of pus from the free sections of the abdominal cavity. Initially formed inflammatory
    Lung abscess is a pathological process characterized by the formation of a limited cavity in the lung tissue as a result of its necrosis and purulent fusion. Main pathogens The development of lung abscess is associated primarily with anaerobic flora - Bacteroides spp., F. nucleatum, Peptostreptococcus spp., P. niger - often in combination with enterobacteria (due to aspiration of the contents
