Concomitant Empyema and Peritonitis with Morganella Morganii in an Immunocompetent Patient: A Case Report
چکیده:   (168 مشاهده)
Background: Peritoneal infection following pleural empyema is not a common occurrence. Concomitant pleural empyema and peritonitis have been described in the literature mostly in immunocompromised patients with different pathogenic mechanisms and a wide array of microorganisms. Here we report a case of concomitant pleural empyema and peritonitis with an unusual microorganism in an immunocompetent host.
Case presentation: The patient is a 42-year-old man with a history of 2 weeks epigastric pain who had been referred for surgical consult after failure of outpatient medical therapy. Physical examination at emergency ward revealed generalized abdominal guarding, tenderness and rebound tenderness. On emergent laparotomy, the peritoneal cavity was full of malodor pus. All abdominal viscera were intact but there was a 2x2 centimeter defect in the top of left hemi-diaphragm. Pus originated from the left thoracic cavity and then drained to the peritoneal cavity. Morganella morganii grew in the culture of aspirated pleural fluid. After abdominal lavage and chest tube drainage and receiving 14 days course of parenteral antibiotics, the patient experienced marked clinical improvement. Punctual history taking revealed a history of pneumonia before the beginning of abdominal symptoms.
Conclusion: In concomitant empyema and peritonitis in an immunocompetent patient, one should keep in mind the possibility of diaphragmatic defect and infection by unusual organisms like M. morganii.
