Active Ingredients: Amoxicillin
Of the 47 children and adolescents with Eikenella infections for whom microbiological data were known, 17 36.
Fifty percent of the cultures of mixed isolates contained streptococci. This suggests there might be synergy in the pathogenicity of Eikenella species and streptococci.
In addition, only 2 of the 30 patients with polymicrobial infections were coinfected with Actinomyces species, another common oropharyngeal pathogen. Despite this low occurrence, this coinfection resulted in osteomyelitis in both patients.
Although the WBC count ranged from 5.
For example, patient 1, a 3-year-old boy, had a puncture wound in the right knee. In the children and adolescents that we describe, previous or concomitant illness had a greater association with Eikenella infections than did a previously healthy status.
Of the 51 patients with a known patient history, 37 72. Other underlying conditions included chronic diseases, such as mental retardation with cerebral palsy, Down's syndrome, diabetes, and leukemia.
Only 14 Eikenella-infected patients 27. Outcomes were recorded for 23 patients. We found that surgery is critical for a favorable outcome.
For example, both patients 1 and 2 were initially receiving appropriate antibiotic therapy, but clinical improvement resulted only after surgical intervention.
Tell the doctor you are taking amoxicillin if you need to have an anaesthetic. Having urine or blood tests If you are having urine tests for diabetes sugar in the urine or blood tests for liver function let the doctor know.
Amoxicillin can affect the results of these tests.Is is dangerous to give to our 8 year old.
