The most common CT findings of acute appendicitis were an enlarged appendix (76.5%), appendolith (29.4%), periappendiceal inflammatory changes (66.2%),appendiceal abscess ( 13.2%), phlegmon (10.3%), cecal apical thickening (7.4%) and adenopathy (5.9%).
Among the 13 cases of MRI, there were 13 cases (100%) of increased enhancement of bowel wall, 12 cases(92%) of mural thickening, 11 cases(85%) of skip lesions, 9(69%) cases of phlegmon, 6 cases of inflammatory masses, 2 cases of fistulas.
Sensitivity for abscess,phlegmon,extraluminal air and extraluminal appendicolith was 42.2%, 51.1%, 15.6% and 8.9% respectively. Specificity was 100% for all findings except for phlegmon which was 94.4%.
Among the 15 cases of CT enterography, there were 15 cases(100%) of mural thickening, 13 cases(87%) of increased enhancement of bowel wall, 13 cases (87%) of skip lesions, 11(73%) cases of phlegmon, 5cases(33%) of abscesses and inflammatory masses and 3 cases of fistulas.
Results: Of the 35 cases,rhinogeous orbital phlegmon was found in 6,traumatic naso-orbital and optic canal fracture in 4,mucocele of nasal sinus in 11,inverting papilloma of nasal cavity and nasal sinus in 3,and malignant tumor in 11.The main pathologic characteristics were as follows: bony absorption of orbit wall in inflammation disorder;
Results Thirty-five neonates (21 males and 14 females) with infection caused by staphylococcus aureus were identified, aged from 6d to 28d,including 24 cases of pneumonia, 7 cases of septicaemia, 2 cases of hypodermic gangrene, 1 case of phlegmona with formation of an abscess and 1 case of omphalitis.
The satisfactory effect could be gained if a conservative treatment was performed first, and then the delayed operative treatment was carried out according to the etiologic and clinical data for the SAP patients with extensive phlegmona, necrosis in the head of the pancreas, severe parapancreas cyst, and a large amount of ascite.
Among them 12 cases with Lump of neck, 9 with ulcer of oral-phargnx, 9 with parctidgland enlarged, 2 with submaxillary pllepoon, 5 with nasal bleeding, 17 wih purulent otitis Media, 4 with at-rophic rhinitis.
Finally, surgical treatment of intraabdominal complications including fistulas, phlegmon, and bowel strictures may have a dramatic impact on patient symptoms and side effects.
With more severe or "complicated" presentations (abscess, phlegmon, obstruction, fistula, or peritonitis), a more aggressive approach may involve percutaneous abscess drainage or urgent surgical therapy.
Retroperitoneal phlegmon following transanal endoscopic microsurgery for rectal adenoma
He developed severe postoperative retroperitoneal phlegmon and sepsis and died 28 days after the operation due to untreatable diffuse intraabdominal bleeding caused by persistent thrombocytopenia.

The use of oral antibiotics for the treatment of pharyngitis, otitis media, sinusitis, bronchitis, certain pneumonias, cellulitis, urinary tract infections and as follow-up therapy to systemic administration is discussed.
We are reporting a case of pneumococcal cellulitis with bacteremia in a patient with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) and nephrotic syndrome.
Four cases of pneumococcal cellulitis in adults have been reported in the literature.
Cellulitis due to catalase-negativeStaphylococcus aureus
Hemophilus influenzae biotype III cellulitis in an adult
The infections included meningitis (31 patients), brain abscesses (four patients), septicaemia (three patients), pleuro-pneumonia (two patients), septic arthritis and soft tissue phlegmona (three patients).
Two comorbidity factors (extreme obesity, diabetes) and the late diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis, the latter masked by celullitis and phlegmona of the abdominal wall, resulted in overdue adequate surgical treatment.
