Purulent infection

Purulent infection is an infectious disease characterized by a purulent inflammation of the tissues arising from the introduction of pyogenic bacteria, often stafilo - or Streptococcus, rarely Pseudomonas or E. coli. The process typical of purulent infection, can cause gonococcus and pneumococcus (in tissues and body cavities), diphtheria Bacillus (the wound). The emergence of purulent foci (under the influence of microbes) is complicated by the sometimes for typhoid fever, paratyphoid. For some common infections typically education local foci suppuration (SAP, bubonic plague, skin form of anthrax). Purulent infection develops in the form of the disease (a boil, carbuncle, erysipelas, abscess, osteomyelitis, and so on) or as a complication of a wound. For it is different. In a number of cases of purulent focus can be eliminated spontaneously or after simple intervention (opening of surface abscess), the other requires a complex operation. Possible generalization process, the development of the General purulent infection, i.e., sepsis (see). Operating festering wounds caused most violation of asepsis and is caused, as a rule, Staphylococcus. This purulent infection can be very dangerous as a hospital aureus often resistant to antibiotics.
