Periodontal E. faecalis exhibited substantial in vitro resistance to tetracycline (53.2% resistant), erythromycin (80.8% resistant or intermediate resistant), clindamycin (100% resistant to 2 μg/mL), and metronidazole (100% resistant to 4 μg/mL). In comparison, the clinical isolates were generally sensitive to ciprofloxacin (89.4% susceptible; 10.6% intermediate resistant) and 100% susceptible in vitro to ampicillin, amoxicillin/clavulanate, vancomycin, and teicoplanin.
A prospective, open, descriptive study.
The interesting beneficial properties of co-amoxiclav, which result in restoring the phagocyte-dependent response in renal transplant patients both in vitro and in vivo, may make this drug more suitable for the treatment of infections in patients with defects of phagocyte functions.
Progress in the understanding of susceptibility factors to drug-induced liver injury (DILI) and outcome predictability are hampered by the lack of systematic programs to detect bona fide cases.

Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis (AGEP) is a rare skin disorder, characterized by acute development of numerous, pin-head sized, nonfollicular pustules on erythematous skin, with high fever and neutrophilia. The condition is frequently caused by hypersensitivity reaction to drugs or viral infections. Diagnosis is established according to clinical and histological criteria. Herein, we report a 17-year-old girl with localized AGEP related to the use of amoxicillin-clavulanate.

The case of cryptogenic Escherichia coli pyogenic liver abscess in a 59-year-old Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) seropositive man is reported. The initial treatment was a percutaneous drainage. As the abscess did not reduce in size, surgical drainage was planned but during surgery a necrosectomy had to be performed resulting in a partial hepatectomy. After nine months of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid treatment, drainage and highly active antiretroviral therapy, the patient recovered completely. It is expected that because of highly active antiretroviral therapy, mortality rates of surgical interventions in patients with HIV infection will decrease. Because of the increased life expectancy in persons with HIV infection, the criteria for considering surgical interventions in these patients should be broadened.

Antibiotic-associated hemorrhagic colitis is a distinct form of antibiotic-associated colitis in which Clostridium difficile is absent. Although the cause is not known, previous reports have suggested a role of Klebsiella oxytoca.
Antibiotics continue to be frequently prescribed for acute cough/LRTI in Poland, and the decision to prescribe was strongly associated with clinicians' findings of abnormalities on auscultation and diagnosis of LRTI. Delayed prescribing was infrequent. Mucolytics were commonly prescribed despite evidence of no effect.
Antibiotic treatment improves the middle ear status in patients with SOM, and amoxicillin-clavulanate provides superior improvement to penicillin V.

This study determined the microbiota of the mucosa- and implant-facing parts of expanded polytetrafluoro ethylene augmentation material, and the influence of major periodontopathogens on the healing process associated with guided bone regeneration around dental implants. Seventeen patients with nine dehiscence and eight extraction defects were studied. Prior to surgery and at membrane removal, microbial morphotypes, total viable counts, and the occurrence of selected microbial species were examined by phase-contrast microscopy, nonselective and selective cultures, and DNA probes. Nine sites with submerged barrier membranes throughout the 9-month study were free of cultivable microorganisms and experienced significantly more osseous healing than eight sites with prematurely exposed membrane. Patients with few or no deep periodontal pockets demonstrated significantly fewer residual osseous defects than patients showing several pockets of increased depths. In addition, patients with prematurely exposed membranes revealed several deep periodontal pockets. Three patients with less than 1 mm of osseous gain yielded either Porphyromonas gingivalis or Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans. Peptostreptococcus micros occurred in high proportions in seven of the eight patients with premature membrane exposure and inadequate osseous healing. These findings associate putative periodontal pathogens with unsuccessful guided bone regeneration. The control of periodontal pathogens in the oral cavity prior to placement of barrier membranes around implants might increase the prognosis of osseous regeneration.
The different species of Lactobacillus genus are bacteria of a low pathogenicity. They are found in the gastrointestinal tract, the female genitourinary tract, and also as part of the anaerobic flora in the mouth. Due to this low pathogenicity, they are generally related with infections together with other with more virulent microorganisms, or in immunocompromised patients. In our case, Lactobacillus appears alone as an etiological agent in an immunocompetent patient with a submental abscess.
A 32-year-old woman attended the Emergency Department of the hospital with severe visual hallucinations together with marked anxiety and nervousness following the second dose of clarithromycin, which was the only medication she was taking. The antibiotic was identified as the possible cause of the clinical manifestations and was stopped immediately. The patient did not require hospitalization and was discharged a few hours later with no signs of neurological disturbances. Clarithromycin was substituted by amoxycillin-clavulanic acid (500/125 mg) t.i.d.
