Acute Bacterial MeningitisFever of Unknown Originand Nuclear Medicine NECROTIZING FASCIITISRapidly progressive soft tissue infection that involves the.
superficial then deep fascia Superficial or deep fascial air without penetrating trauma pathognomonic Thickened fascia with islands of non enhancing soft tissue on Clinical diagnosis regardless of imaging findings.
Entirely normal fascia can rule out necrotizing fasciitis Main utility of imaging is to aid surgical planning for disease MRI is modality of choice due to better tissue contrast CASE 1 62 year old patient comes in complaining of rapidlyprogressive cellulitis and tenderness of his right ankle.
with inability to bear weight This started three days agowhen he tripped while hiking He has a PMH of type 2 diabetes mellitus Hep C andliver transplant 10 years prior with chronic tacrolimustherapy to prevent rejection .

Necrotizing fasciitis of the perineumUltrasound usually initial test forscrotal swelling showing edema andsoft tissue air with normal testesCT would be next step for extent of.
NEUTROPENIC COLITIS TYPHLITIS Progressive colitis involving the cecum usually in patients withleukemia and or hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients majority of cases in AML Patients have an absolute neutrophil.

Pneumoperitonium perforation CASE 3Many times perforation is only seen with a few locules of extraluminal air and is vital toearly surgical treatment concerning.

now seen more with C difficile Severe colonic distention mainly intransverse colon out of proportion tosmall bowel distention Absent or abnormal haustral pattern.

Acute pyogenic inflammation and infiltration of the pia arachnoid and CSF Most common non contrast CT finding is normal Smooth leptomeningial enhancement in sulci and basilar Mild hydrocephalus.
meningitis Image on the right shows smooth leptomeningeal enhancement keeping with a bacterialcause while the enhancement on the image on the right is nodular and may representsarcoid or tuberculosis meningitis 6 meningitis You order a.
