Abstract

GARCIA APAC, Coralith; PARDO VALDESPINO, Juan  and  SEAS RAMOS, Carlos. Bacteremia por Staphylococcus epidermidis y abceso de partes blandas en un paciente post-operado: reporte de un caso. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2003, vol.14, n.4, pp.221-223. ISSN 1018-130X.

We report a case of an 11 year old male who presented with bacteremia by S. epidermidis and soft tissue abscesses after a bone autograft procedure. The patient received only medical treatment, resolving the abscesses successfully. We also did a review of the literature on S. epidermidis bacteremia, an entity which has acquired increasing importance in the etiology of hospital infections. (Rev Med Hered 2003; 14:221-223).

Keywords : Bacteremia; Staphylococcus epidermidis; abscesses.
