Clinical Case Reports
Astrid BoucherMatteo Coen


Contrary to puerperal abscess, nonpuerperal breast abscess is often caused by anaerobic bacteria; polymicrobial aerobic-anaerobic infections are also frequent. Empiric first-choice treatment with broad-spectrum antibiotics should be considered.

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.
