    ; specific antiserum 이용

    ; *rota virus infection (infantile gastroenteritis), Hepatitis B surface Ag detect


1) urine culture   

    ; 89 most useful for isolation of CMV

    ; *good source of isolation of mumps. adenovirus

2) specimen should be transported at 4

3) best throat specimen

       taken by vigorous throat swabbing, removing some superficial cells

4) ※객 vesicular fluid culture 필요한 경우

2) electron microscopy ( EM )

        : direct visualization of virions within infected cells

Serologic Test

# Speciemen

           - early acute phase (acute serum) & later 14-21 days (convalescent serum)

    ; *2nd specimen earlier than 14 days이면 3rd blood specimen 4~6wks later

# Etiologic Dx titer

    ; acute phase serum에서 보다 convalescent serum에서 4 이상 ↑해야 한다.

# Single specimen Dx. support하는 경우

    1) E-B Ab

    2) Young infant에서의 Ab mother 없는 경우

    3) infant 커감에 따라서 infant mother에서 Ab level 동일시

  4) Mumps 의심時 presence of Ab to the soluble (s) fraction of the mumps virus in the acute serum, when Ab to viral [V] Ag may be absent or very low

    ; Acute infection IgM viral specific Ab

    ; general population 비교하여 high Ab level

# methods for Ig M Ab detection

    ; diffcult to standardize

  F (+) result common

  Ig G Ab assay : viral pathogen induce humoral immunity (primary inf. 수년 지속)

                                useful for established immune status

Method for Detecting Ab

# *CF Ab : useful in recent inf. but less useful in past inf.

# Neutralizing Ab

    ; remain for life, early Ds. serum 얻게 되면 Ab rise difficult

    - Neutralization test : c/s에서보다 disadvantage

# HI Ab

    ; correlate fairly well with neutralizing ab.

    ; erythrocyte agglutination (+) viurs

   # hematogenous O.M : M.C in 10 year children

Pathology & Pathogenesis

    1. virulent organism -> focal inf. in bone

                        -> suppuration & ischemic necrosis

                        -> fibrosis & bony repair

    2. entire bone involved : marrow, cortex, periosteum

    3. acute hematogenous O.M : localization of bloodborne bacteria

         * sta. aureus : adhesion to connective tissue elements in bone

         * local trauma -> thrombosis

                       -> inf. localized

         * source of bacteremia

           a. focal suppurative inf.

           b. inapparent, unidentified colonization or inf.

    4. inf. : begin in the metaphyseal region of long bone

            a. contain stagnant network of end arterioles & capillary

            b. lacks effective phagocytic cells

          : production of inflam. exudate

            -> septic thrombosis of vessels & compromised vascular supply

            -> ischemic bony infarction with local pain

            -> sufficient pus : intact periosteum elevation시키기 위해 subperiosteal space collection

            -> disruption of the periosteal component of blood supply

                 & infarction of cortical bone

( of infants in febrile neutropenia cancer patient)

     (1) Prompt initiation of empiric broad-spectrum, bactericidal antibiotics

       a. monotherapy

         . ceftazidine, cefoperazone, or imipenem/cilastatin

         . 그후 S. epidermidis 나타날 경우

            : vancomycin 첨가

         . monotherapy mild neutropenia(500-1,000 neutrophil)경우이면서 S. epidermidis pathogen이라

          생각 되지 않을때 사용

       b. double beta-lactam therapy

         1. extended G(-) spectrum carboxy- or ureido-penicillin

             (ticarcillin with or without clavulanic acid, mezlocillin, piperacillin)

            and a cephalosporin

             (ceftazidine, cefoperazone, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone)

             - disadvantage

                . selection of resistant bacteria

                . possible antibiotic antagonism

                . poor antistaphylococcal coverage

         2. anti-pseudomonas beta-lactam penicillin or cephalosporin

               + aminoglycoside

             - avoid the risk of the emergence of resistent organism

             - synergistic

             - anaerobic coverage

            - most beneficial in a risk of serious staphylococcal, enterococcal

               or bacterial multiple-resistant inf.


     (2) Duration and modification of antimicrobial therapy

        1) antibiotic Tx 72시간 afebrile 해지고, bacterial source identify되는 경우

           - Tx. should be modified based on the antibiotic sensitivity

           - 그러나 spectrum 너무 좁아지면 bacteremia 나타날 risk 높기 때문에 broad spectrum

               antibiotic 계속 사용해야 한다.

        2) antibiotic Tx response 좋은 (afebrile, negative repeat culture,

           free of signs and symptoms of inf.) pt.에서 적어도 7일간 사용

        3) antibiotics stop된후 neutrophil count 500 넘어야 한다.


        4) high risk pt.

            - profound neutropenia, mucositis

            - signs of persistent inf.

            - central line tract inf.

            - bleeding

            - impending invasive procedure or chemotherapy

          경우 neutrophil count 500이상 까지 antibiotics 계속 사용하는 것이 benefit하다.

        5) 어떤 clinicians defervescence or clinical well-being 상관없이 fever

            neutropenia 있는 모든 환자는 neutrophil count 500이상 될때까지

            antibiotics 계속 사용하여야 한다고 권고한다.

        6) febrile despite broad-spectrum antibiotic Tx and no pathogen is identified

            - reassess the patient's condition

          # etiology of persistent fever

              a. nonbacterial pathogen

                 : candida, aspergillus, toxoplasma, herpes simplex, cytomegalovirus, 

                   Epstein-Barr virus, enterovirus

              b. emergence of a second resistant species of bacteria

              c. inadequate serum or tissue antibiotics levels

              d. drug fever

              e. deep tissue (abscess) or catheter inf.

              f. fever resulting from the underlying malig.


        7) if no identified cause of fever is evident, the fever and neutropenia remains after 5-7days

              of antibiotics therapy,

            there is no progression or deterioration in the patient's condition and the patient appears

              clinically well.

            - the original antibiotics may be continued

        8) ill하여 보이거나 inf. manifestation progress 경우

            - vancomycin or 3rd generation cephalosporin 첨가

           (initial empiric regimen 들어있지 않은 경우)

        9) antibiotics modification하였는데도 불구하고 neutropenic하면서 7 febrile한경우

            1. intravenous amphotericin B start

               (33%에서 invasive fungal ds. 가짐)

            2. amphotericin B initiation 하기 invasive candidiasis, aspergillosis, or mucormycosis 

               source 결정하기 위해 행하여야 evaluation

                - biopsy of lesion

                - several bl. and urine culture

                - chest and sinus roentgenograms repeated

                - abd. CT : to identify hepatic or splenic microabscess

                - opthalmologic examination

                     : to identify candidal ophthalmitis

           3. daily for 2wks (fungal inf. identify 안된 경우)

                - stop하여 환자 condition re-evaluate

           4. documented fungal inf. 경우

                - prolonged amphotericin B and aspiration or incision and drainage of cutaneous lesion

                   or deep abscess

           5. side effect : nephrotoxicity

              - 줄이기 위해 nephrotoxic drug 사용을 줄임<
