This study compared the relative effectiveness of two antimicrobial preparations, amoxicillin and amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium (Augmentin), in the treatment of acute maxillary sinusitis in children 2 to 16 years of age. Of 171 children with persistent (ten to 30 days' duration) nasal discharge or daytime cough or both, 136 (80%) had abnormal maxillary sinus radiographs. These children were stratified by age and severity of symptoms and randomly assigned to receive either amoxicillin, amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium, or placebo. After the exclusion of 28 children with throat cultures positive for group A Streptococcus and 15 who did not complete their medication, the remaining 93 children were evaluated: 30 received amoxicillin, 28 received amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium, and 35 received placebo. Clinical assessment was performed at three and ten days. On each occasion, children treated with an antibiotic were more likely to be cured than children receiving placebo (P less than .01 at three days, P less than .05 at ten days). The overall cure rate was 67% for amoxicillin, 64% for amoxicillin-clavulanate potassium, and 43% for placebo.
This was an investigator-blinded, multicenter study in which 318 children 6 months through 6 years of age with a clinical diagnosis of AOM were randomized to receive 10 days of either cefdinir (14 mg/kg divided BID) or high-dose amoxicillin/clavulanate (90/6.4 mg/kg divided BID).

Despite occasional late recurrences, antibiotic-only treatment of early appendicitis in children is feasible, safe, cost-effective and is experienced more favorably by patients and parents.

These findings revealed a relatively large number and inappropriate utilisation of ATBs and NSAIDs. An interventional programme needs to be adopted to reinforce physicians' knowledge of the rational prescription of these agents.

residents of care homes, particularly of nursing homes, are frequently prescribed antibiotics and often experience diarrhoea following such prescriptions. Co-amoxiclav is associated with greater risk of AAD.
The incidence of sexually transmitted diseases recently increased in the United States and Europe due to migration, increase in high-risk behavior, and abandonment of safer sex practices at the advent of anti-retroviral combination therapy for human immunodeficiency virus infection. This article presents four cases of primary oral anti perioral syphilis with differential diagnoses. It is important to bear this reappearing infection in mind to avoid latent infection. Resembling common oral infections, the primary affect disappears spontaneously, and the infection enters the second stage. The patient remains infected, may further spread the disease, and risks severe organ damage from long-standing infection. The antibiotic cure is inexpensive and safe and spares the patient mucous patches and gumma residuals, apart from severe general sequelae such as thoracic aorta aneurysm and neurosyphilis. However, compliance problems jeopardize clinical and serologic follow-up. The growing syphilis incidence prompts the commemoration of Dr Moriz Kaposi and his dispositive 1891 book Pathology and Therapy of the Syphilis. Moriz Kaposi is acknowledged as one of the heads of the Vienna School of Dermatology, a superb clinician, and renowned teacher.
A retrospective review of medical records from 2008 to 2013 at Inje University Busan Paik Hospital was performed.

Pharmacokinetics of a parenteral formulation comprised of 5 parts of amoxicillin and 1 part of clavulanic acid were determined in 12 pediatric patients, 2 to 14 years of age. A single dose amounting to 25 mg of amoxicillin and 5 mg of clavulanic acid per kg of body weight was infused intravenously over 2 min. Mean plasma concentrations 5 min after dosing were 89.4 micrograms of amoxicillin per ml and 19.5 micrograms of clavulanic acid per ml. Terminal phase plasma half-lives were 1.2 and 0.8 h, respectively. The data acquired in this study indicate that amoxicillin and clavulanic acid are pharmacokinetically compatible. Moreover, taken with assessment of microbiological activities by others, the present data suggest that intravenous administration of 25 mg of amoxicillin plus 5 mg of clavulanic acid per kg every 6 h is a reasonable starting regimen for assessing the activity of the combined drug formulation in noninvasive childhood diseases caused by Haemophilus influenzae, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococci spp., Neisseria spp., Branhamella catarrhalis, and other susceptible organisms.
Patients receiving fluticasone propionate had a 62% lower risk of experiencing an asthma-related hospitalization within 1 year and a 44% lower risk of switching or augmenting to another asthma controller medication compared with montelukast. Asthma-related health care expenditures for montelukast patients were dollar 339 higher than for fluticasone propionate users (P < .001). Overall health care expenditures (asthma and nonasthma) were also dollar 1,197 higher in the montelukast group.

The threat to human health posed by antibiotic-resistant bacterial pathogens is of growing concern to medical practice. This study investigated the antibiotic sensitivity pattern of Salmonella typhi isolated from blood specimen. One hundred blood samples were collected from suspected typhoid fever patients in 31 Artillery Brigade Medical Centre, Minna, and were analyzed for S. typhi while antibiotic sensitivity testing was done Kirby-Bauer method. Sixty (60.0%) samples out of the total 100 were positive for bacterial growth. The organisms isolated 2 include Salmonella typhi; 45 (75.0%), Shigella; 6 (10.0%), E. coli; 3 (5.0%), Klebsiella; 3 (5.0%), Enterobacter; 2 (3.3%), and Citrobacter; 1 (1.7%). Result of the sensitivity test showed that the isolates were resistant to all the antibiotics; ceftriaxone, cefuroxime, amoxicillin, ampicillin, ciprofloxacin, and augmentin, which are the drug of choice routinely used in the study area for the treatment of typhoid fever. They were however sensitive to chloramphenicol and ofloxacin, which, unfortunately, are not used in this study area for the treatment of typhoid fever. There appear to be multiple drug resistant (MDR) strain of S. typhi in the study area. These may be as a result of overdependence or uncontrolled use of the few available antibiotics and/or inaccurate or inconclusive diagnosis resulting in the development and spread of resistant strains of S. typhi. The study, therefore, highlights the need for a strong collaboration between the physicians and the laboratory in the choice of antibiotics for the treatment of bacterial diseases in order to discourage the development of resistant strain of bacterial pathogen.

Hundred and thirty-seven consecutive FN were recorded in 128 patients. Twenty-six FN (19%) were managed at home (all of them had a MASCC score ≥ 21); 111 (81%) were treated at hospital of which 37 NF were at HR of complications based on clinical and biological parameters (all of them had a MASCC score < 21) and for 74 of them the admission could be discussed (MASCC < 20 or ≥ 20). This group of patients was considerate with intermediate risk (IR). All IR patients were treated with the same antibiotics than outpatients, i.e. ceftriaxone in 36 cases (49%) or amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and ciprofloxacin in 38 cases (51%). For these 74 cases, any severe complication was recorded. Antibiotics were adapted for only 12% of these patients according to bacteriology results.
Ninety-one pediatric patients with acute rhinosinusitis were included in our study. The patients were randomized into two groups. The first group (n=45) was treated with standard therapy (antibiotherapy+nasal decongestant) for 2 weeks, the second group was treated with the large volume low pressure nasal saline+fluticasone propionate combination for 3 weeks. The clinical scores, radiologic evaluations (X-ray Waters view), peak nasal inspiratory flow (PNIF) measurements, total symptom scores and hematologic parameters (WBC, CRP, ESR) of the patients were evaluated and compared.
