An unusual presentation of subdural empyema caused by Porphyromonas gingivalis.

Subdural empyema is an uncommon clinical entity. The first case of Porphyromonas gingivalis subdural empyema is reported. We report a case of 34-year-...

Empyema caused by Prevotella bivia complicating an unusual case of spontaneous chylothorax.
Spontaneous chylothorax is rare in adults. We present an unusual case that was complicated by Prevotella bivia empyema. Full recovery was achieved with chest tube drainage and prompt treatment with intravenous clindamycin.

Case of a cerebral abscess caused by Porphyromonas gingivalis in a subject with periodontitis.
We report the case of a 65-year-old man presenting with generalised seizures after developing a right frontal brain abscess. Stereotactic aspiration and subsequent matrix assisted laser desorption/ionisation time-of-flight analyzer (MALDI-TOF) spectr

A case of bacteremia caused by Campylobacter fetus: an unusual presentation in an infant.
Bacteremia due to Campylobacter spp. is rarely reported, and Campylobacter fetus is the species most commonly exhibiting vascular tropism, as occurred in this case report describing the diagnosis of C. fetus bacteremia in an infant presenting with re

Streptococcal pharyngitis: an uncommon cause of subdural empyema.
A 7-year-old girl with an unremarkable medical history presented to a local paediatric emergency department with a 7-day history of fever, sore throat and vomiting, and a 1-day history of rash. She was admitted to the hospital, with presumed Kawasaki

Citrullination and proteolytic processing of chemokines by Porphyromonas gingivalis.
The outgrowth of Porphyromonas gingivalis within the inflammatory subgingival plaque is associated with periodontitis characterized by periodontal tissue destruction, loss of alveolar bone, periodontal pocket formation, and eventually, tooth loss. Po

Breaking bad: manipulation of the host response by Porphyromonas gingivalis.
Recent metagenomic and mechanistic studies are consistent with a new model of periodontal pathogenesis. This model proposes that periodontal disease is initiated by a synergistic and dysbiotic microbial community rather than by a select few bacteria

Intracranial subdural empyema mimicking a recurrent chronic subdural hematoma.
Intracranial subdural empyema (ISDE) is a life-threatening condition. The risk for ISDE increases in patients that have undergone prior intracranial procedures. The non-specificity in its clinical presentation often makes ISDE difficult to diagnose.

Reducing the bioactivity of Tannerella forsythia lipopolysaccharide by Porphyromonas gingivalis.
Tannerella forsythia is considered a pathogen of periodontitis and forms a biofilm with multi-species bacteria in oral cavity. Lipopolysaccharide is a powerful immunostimulator and induces inflammation and shock. The purpose of this study was to inve

Is Sinusitis Innocent?--Unilateral Subdural Empyema in an Immunocompetent Child.
Subdural empyema related to Streptococcus constellatus is extremely rare in an immunocompetent child, and also there is no reported case along with Staphylococcus lugdunensis infection. Although Streptococcus constellatus has been determined as a co-

Noncanonical activation of β-catenin by Porphyromonas gingivalis.
Porphyromonas gingivalis is an established pathogen in periodontal disease and an emerging pathogen in serious systemic conditions, including some forms of cancer. We investigated the effect of P. gingivalis on β-catenin signaling, a major pathway in
