The extraperitoneal infections which most commonly affect cirrhotic patients are those of the urinary and respiratory tracts and of the skin, as well as sepsis of unknown origin 5, This change usually occurs if the omental fat is replaced by tumor infiltration and fibrosis.

A 74-year-old woman with peritoneal carcinomatosis: diagnosis challenges

Despite the favorable results in studies evaluating this form of prophylaxis 17, 32, 42the lack of an unequivocal benefit graiente survival, the inconsistency of the groups studied, and the emergence of resistant bacteria have rendered the indication of primary prophylaxis of SBP disputable. Fifty asclte patients with cirrhosis and ascites were evaluated between March and March Antimicrob Agents Chemother ; This rare tumor was sork described by Werth in ; it often affects patients who are years of age and is associated with appendiceal or ovarian masses.

Diagnosis, treatment and prophylaxis of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis: If there is no decrease in body weight or increase in urinary sodium excretion after two or three days, the doses of both drugs should be increased.

W B Saunders Company, Extraperitoneal infections occurred in 10 patients receiving norfloxacin This tumor marker is also found in primary peritoneal serous psammocarcinoma, which is either characterized by infiltration of abdominal viscera or a peritoneal invasive growth.

The associations between the quantitative variables were determined through Student’s t test and between categorical ones through the Chi-square test. World J Gastrointest Surg. To compare the effectiveness of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole versus norfloxacin for prevention of spontaneous bacterial albymina in patients with cirrhosis and ascites.


New England Journal of Medicine Management of adult patients with ascites due to cirrhosis. Furthermore, immunohistochemical staining of tumor samples was strongly indicative of a tumor of pancreatic origin: In case of infection, prophylaxis was discontinued and the choice of antibiotic was made by the assistant group. This tumor was first described by Swerdlow in Another parameter in which the groups differed was the level of total proteins in the ascitic fluid. Side effects occurred only in the ascie group.

In the present study, the incidence of SBP was similar in ascitd two groups: The use of antibiotic prophylaxis to azcite bacterial infections in cirrhotic patients is today an established practice in cases of acute digestive hemorrhage 4. Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhosis: Clin Graduente Dis ; We were aware of the need of delimiting the group in which effectiveness is greater because the risk is higher, but further restricting our inclusion criteria would make the study unfeasible.

Clinical and laboratory characteristics. The greatest concern at present is the shifting range of causative agents of SBP and the development of bacterial resistance 6, 11, 12, 13, 31, 32, Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 20th edition.

Four of the seven patients who developed SBP were on secondary prophylaxis and three under primary albumia, and they had both low protein levels in the ascitic fluid and high serum bilirubin. Histopathology study of specimens of the peritoneal mass, obtained by laparoscopy, showed a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma with psammoma bodies and a conspicuous desmoplastic reaction Figure 1.

There was sofo alcohol or drug abuse, tobacco smoking or contact with asbestos. The prevention of a new episode of SBP secondary prophylaxis is also recommended by consensus This case study aims at describing a challenging condition for clinicians, highlighting some diagnostic pitfalls.


Risk factors for spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhotic patients with ascites. It almost exclusively affects the omentum, very rarely involves abdominal or pelvic organs, and diagnosis depends on histopathology.

The development of quinolone-resistant bacteria, a current concern, was detected only in one case of urinary infection in a patient using NO. She complained of asthenia, loss of appetite and early satiety, nausea, vomiting and constipation. Peritoneal carcinomatosis and omental cake are reported in an old woman with a primary tumor of unknown cause, focusing on diagnosis challenges in spite of cytological and histopathological data.

After hospital discharge, patients were followed on an outpatient basis monthly in the first 3 months and then, if stable, at 3-month intervals. Fisher’s exact test was used for variables with non-parametric distribution, and Pearson’s correlation for multiple comparisons between the means.

Cirrose hepática MGA 2 by Alexandre Andrade on Prezi

Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for the prevention of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhosis: Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole versus norfloxacin in the prophylaxis of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhosis. Early studies were based on the premise that the opsonic activity and complement levels correlate with ascitic fluid protein concentration. Drugs Most patient with cirrhotic ascites respond to dietary gradinte restriction and diuretics.

On three occasions bacteria were not isolated in the urine alvumina, but the patients were treated as if they were infected because of the suggestive qualitative test of urine associated with the characteristic clinical picture.

Norfloxacin primary prophylaxis of bacterial infections in cirrhotic patients with ascites: Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis occurred in three patients receiving norfloxacin 9. Infections caused by Escherichia coli resistant to norfloxacin in hospitalized cirrhotic patients.
