- Purpura fulminans after therapeutic hypothermia in an asphyxiated neonate with streptococcemia. [Case Reports]
- AJAm J Perinatol 2014; 31(4):257-60
- CONCLUSIONS: Although purpura fulminans cannot be attributed to hypothermia solely, the influence of hypothermia on hemostasis may have promoted severe coagulopathy with a fatal outcome. Further studies are necessary to reveal therapeutic hypothermia as a trigger for severe coagulopathies in asphyxiated neonates, especially in those with sepsis and overt coagulopathy prior to therapeutic hypothermia.

233 patients with erysipelas, admitted to the Department of Infectious Diseases, Danderyd Hospital, during a 2-year period were analysed for epidemiological, bacteriological and complicating features. Erysipelas was defined clinically as a febrile skin infection with a sudden onset of a red indurated expanding plaque with a distinct border. Common predisposing factors were alcohol abuse, diabetes mellitus and venous insufficiency, and complications were more common among such patients. No seasonal variation was found. 5% of patients with blood culture had streptococcemia (7/149). Erysipelas emerging from an infected ulcer was seen in 52% (122/233) and in 46% of these streptococci were isolated (57/122), 67% of which were of type A (38/57). Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from 59% of ulcerative cases (72/122) and in 3 of them staphylococci were found in the blood.

Two cases of facial erysipelas in immunologically altered hosts are reported herein. The unusual presentation with absence of erythema in the skin lesion is emphasized. Atypical fever patterns were also noted. In one patient, the facial lesion followed the onset of fever by 48 hours, and, in the other, the facial swelling preceded the fever. Various aspects of the patient's altered host status are discussed in light of the atypical clinical presentation. Recognition of facial erysipelas as a potential source of group A beta-hemolytic streptococcemia in immune-altered hosts is important to ensure rapid and appropriate therapeutic intervention.
