  • Phenotypic Characterization and Serotypes Identification of CSF isolates
           in Acute Bacterial Meningitis

    • Authors: Birhanemeskel Tegene; Kassahun Denekew, Gashaw Mesele
      Pages: 100 - 105
      Abstract: Background and Aim: Bacterial meningitis is a fatal disabling disease which needs prompt antibiotic management. As it causes a significant morbidity and mortality throughout the world, every developing country should have accurate information regarding the common etiological agents in bacterial meningitis cases. In the present study, we have serotyped the obtained agents in order to predict the usefulness of existing vaccines against bacterial meningitis. Materials and Methods: Two thousand nineteen cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples were obtained prospectively from suspected meningitis from January 2011 to July 2013 out of which 76 cases were approved by cytological, microbiological, molecular, and biochemical analysis as per the standard techniques. The isolated bacteria were serotyped to determine the predominant strain. Results: On the whole, 2019 CSF samples were collected, and bacterial etiology was isolated in 76 cases; S. pneumoniae in 31.5%, N. meningitides in 18.4%, and H. influenza in 10.5% of culture positive samples. Gram stained smears were positive in 63 samples. Among pneumococcal meningitis the most common serotype was 1, (29 %), followed by 19F, (25%), 18F, (8.3%), 6, (16.6%), 14, (12.5%), and 20 (8.3%). Out of the N. meningitidis positive CSF samples, 35.7%, 21.4%, and 35.7%, belonged to serogroups A, C, and W-135, respectively, and one non-groupable isolate were involved as S. pneumoniae meningitis. In the H. influenzae group only serotype b (87.5%), and untypable, 1, (7.5%) cases have been identified. Only 17, (0.8%) soluble antigens were detected from culture negative CSF samples. High protein and low sugar levels associated well with the features of ABM. The mean sugar and protein level in the CSF samples were 22.3 ± 9.8 mg/dl, 85.3 ± 51.29 mg/dl, respectively. Conclusions: The isolation rate of bacteria causing meningitis is 3.8%. Out of the total pneumococcal serotypes three of them were not included in the current vaccine in Ethiopia. Unusual findings and high a proportion of serogroup W-135 meningococci are observed in our study area The role of clinical presentations, routine CSF analysis in the rapid diagnosis of acute bacterial meningitis in cases of negative gram stained smears and a good knowledge of the bacterial epidemiology of meningitis can serve as a guide to start a rapid treatment as early as possible. Recommendation: the result of this study can be used to improve the existing vaccines to cover the detected serotypes and consequently reduce the incidence of bacterial meningitis.

  • An Unusual Case of Neck Swelling

    • Authors: Vinay Acharya; Jose A Perez Jr
      Pages: 106 - 108
      Abstract: Acute Suppurative Thyroiditis (AST), an infection of the thyroid caused by bacteria, fungi, or parasites, is a unique cause of thyroid disease. While the causative agents are usually gram-positive skin flora, cases due to atypical bacteria or fungi have been seen in susceptible patient populations. In adults, AST is usually attributed to trauma, fine needle aspiration of the thyroid, or an immunocompromised state usually due to organ transplant, HIV infection, or uncontrolled diabetes. If untreated, the morbidity and mortality of AST is high. We describe a case of AST in a patient whose only risk factor was uncontrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus where the presumed causative agent was extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producing E. coli, an exceedingly rare cause of AST. We discuss the commonly reported etiologies, risk factors, and hormonal dysfunction of this rare condition.

  • Bacterial Distribution and Antibiotic Susceptibility Pattern of group B
           Streptococcus β hemolytic (GBS) in Vaginal Infections at Cotonou in Benin

    • Authors: Tchiakpe Edmond; Zahra Fall Malick, Laurence Carine Yehouenou, Honoré Sourou Bankolé, Abou Bekou Wilfried, Esse Atchéni Marius, Halimatou Diop Ndiaye, Coumba Touré Kane

      Abstract: No orthodox practices disrupt the vaginal flora and expose it to pathogenic microorganisms including group B Streptococcus β hemolytic (GBS). The study aims to describe the bacterial profil and resistance of GBS to antibiotics. Retrospective study included 640 women at Cotonou suspected of vaginal infections or vaginal discharge during 1st January 2004 to 31st December 2015. Three swabs were collected and analyzed to identify the bacteria by standard biochemical reactions, diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis and identification of Trichomonas vaginalis, yeasts and leukocyte count. Antibiogram was performed according to the CA-SFM. Among 640 samples, 502 (78.4%) were positive. The most encountered microorganisms were Candida albicans (37.45%) and GBS (19.92%). GBS sensitivity ranged from 80-100% for augmentin, pefloxacin and nitrofuran. But resistance was observed to netilmicin, tetracyclin, cefoxitin, cephalotin, thiamphenicol, trimethoprim / sulfamethnoxazole between 80-100%. A high percentage of resistance is the result of uncontrolled access to antibiotics and improper antibiotic policy. Routine susceptibility testing will allow to take appropriate treatment of GBS in Benin.
