Resumen

MARTIN-BERRA, MARIELA; NAVARRO-LOPEZ, VICENTE; SIRVENT, ELIA  y  JIMENEZ, MONTIEL. Pancreatic pseudocyst infection caused by Haemophilus parainfluenzae: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2011, vol.139, n.2, pp.215-217. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872011000200011.

We report a 48-year-old male admitted to hospital due to a severe alcoholic pancreatitis. At four weeks of evolution of the acute episode, an abdominal CAT scan showed a fluid collection of 20 cm diameter located in the pancreatic tail and 2 small collections in the head. The patient received several antimicrobials and during the seventh week of evolution, while receiving vancomycin, presented fever. A fine needle aspiration of the cyst revealed the presence of Haemophilus parainfluenzae biotype VIII. The patient was treated with amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and a laparoscopic cysto-gastrostomy, with a good clinical response.

Palabras clave : Abdominal abscess; Haemophilus parainfluenzae; Pancreatitis, alcoholic.
