A 77-year-old woman presented with a trauma to the scalp caused from the blade of a windmill. The condition was persistent from the past 50 years. At the initial examination, a deep, foul-smelling and well-circumscribed ulcer was apparent on the head region, involving the majority of the cranium. Skin biopsy specimens of the lesion were nonspecific. The bone biopsy showed extensive necrotic areas of bone and soft tissues, with lymphocytic exudate foci. A computed tomography scan of the head revealed bone destruction principally involving both the parietal bones, and parts of the frontal and occipital bones. Streptococcus parasanguis was isolated from the skin culture, and Proteus mirabilis and Peptostreptococcus sp. were identified in the cultures from the bone. A long-term treatment with amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (1 g/12 h) and levofloxacin (500 mg/day) was prescribed, but even after 6 months, the lesion remained unchanged. The frequency of occurrence of scalp ulcers in dermatological patients is less, principally because of the rich blood supply to this area. We have not found any similar case report of a scalp ulcer secondary to chronic osteomyelitis discovered more than 50 years after the causal trauma. We want to highlight the importance of complete cutaneous evaluation including skin and bone biopsies, when scalp osteomyelitis is suspected.

Overall, 270 patients were enrolled, but 13 patients early interrupted treatment due to side effects. At intention-to-treat (ITT) and per-protocol analysis (PP), the eradication rates were 85.5% and 91.6% with the concomitant regimen, 91.1% and 92.1% with the sequential therapy, and 80% and 85.7% with the hybrid regimen. Differences were not statistically significant. H. pylori infection was cured in 10 (55.6%) patients with the second-line regimen.

The in vitro and in vivo activities of sparfloxacin against Mycoplasma pneumoniae were compared with those of erythromycin, levofloxacin, ofloxacin, and minocycline. The MICs of sparfloxacin, erythromycin, levofloxacin, ofloxacin, and minocycline for 90% of the 43 M. pneumoniae strains tested were 0.063, 0.016, 0.5, 1, and 0.5 microgram/ml, respectively. In the experimental pulmonary M. pneumoniae infection model in Syrian golden hamsters, sparfloxacin was as effective as erythromycin when orally administered at 15 mg/kg twice daily for 5 days and more effective than erythromycin when orally administered at 10 mg/kg once daily for 5 days. Sparfloxacin was more effective than levofloxacin and ofloxacin in both dosing regimens. The peak concentrations of sparfloxacin in hamster sera after administration of single oral doses of 15 mg/kg were almost the same as those in human sera after administration of single oral doses of 200 mg (the usual clinical dose), and the half-life of sparfloxacin in hamster serum was shorter than that in human serum after administration of a single oral dose of 200 mg. These results suggest that sparfloxacin may be clinically useful for the treatment of M. pneumoniae infections.

Abnormal baseline transaminase levels are the independent risk factors for anti-TB therapy-induced hepatitis. Levofloxacin and moxifloxacin caused no additional hepatotoxicity when they were used by patients with hepatitis induced by first-line anti-TB drugs.
In this study we evaluated the in vitro activities of cefditoren--a broad-spectrum oral cephalosporin--and other comparator agents against 2,396 fresh isolates from community-acquired respiratory tract infections, collected from 6 clinical Italian microbiology laboratories. On penicillin-susceptible pneumococci and Streptococcus pyogenes, cefditoren demonstrated to be the most active antibiotic (MIC(90)values of 0.03 and 0.06 mg/L respectively), showing only a slight decrease in potency on penicillin-intermediate and resistant pneumococci (MIC(90)value 0.5 mg/L, 1.0 mg/L respectively). All the other comparators displayed MIC(90 )values of 4 - 8 mg/L for penicillins and of 4 to >64 mg/L for the oral cephalosporins. Cefditoren and levofloxacin were the most active against MSSA (MIC(90)0.5 mg/mL). Cefditoren displayed a uniformly potent inhibitory activity (MIC(90)of 0.03 mg/L) against all strains of Haemophilus influenzae, regardless of their ampicillin resistance (mediated or not by beta-lactamase production), while against Moraxella catarrhalis MIC(90)values were higher against beta-lactamase-positive (0.25 mg/L). Cefditoren was active also against Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli : in this case its activity was comparable with that of levofloxacin. In conclusion, cefditoren, due to its potent activity, is a new effective therapeutic option for the treatment of respiratory tract infections.

Results showed a loss of viability associated with free radical production depending on fluoroquinolone molecules. Pefloxacin appeared more tenotoxic but no study has confirmed its efficacy in surgical antibiotic prophylaxis and its use in the patient who is 60 years and older could be disputed. Ciprofloxacin is highly toxic with a low ocular diffusion and seems to be inappropriate for antibiotic prophylaxis. Ofloxacin and levofloxacin are less cytotoxic, associated with good ocular diffusion and a broad antibacterial spectrum.

Single- and Multi-step selection studies were used to test the ability of BMS-284756, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, trovafloxacin and moxifloxacin to yield resistant clones from 12 quinolone-susceptible and -resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae strains. Although all quinolones selected, to a greater or lesser degree, for resistant clones with mutations usually in parC or gyrA, BMS-284756 tended to select for resistant clones at a lower rate than other quinolones studied.

Primary, secondary, and tertiary resistances against clarithromycin were 7.5, 63.2, and 75.4%, respectively. Primary, secondary, and tertiary resistances to levofloxacin were 11.7, 17.6, and 36.4% and to metronidazole were 32.7, 63.2, and 80.1%, respectively. The resistance rates against tetracycline and rifabutin were comparatively low (<5%), even in patients with previous exposure to these antibiotics. Resistance to rifabutin increased to 6.2% in patients who received more than two previous eradication therapies. Amoxicillin resistance was not detectable in all patients.
