Antibiotic treatment of renal carbuncle

Annals of Internal Medicine

Abstract

Renal carbuncles in seven young males were successfully treated with long-term administration of penicillinase-resistant antibiotics. Selective renal arteriography provided an accurate means of diagnosis and permitted a trial of medical therapy. All patients experienced a prompt and sustained clincial remission; surigical exploration was thus obviated in all but one instance, in which post-treatment radiographic changes persisted.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
