Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus frequently causes infections in outpatient and hospital settings and can present as a highly variable entity. Typical manifestations are endocarditis, osteoarticular infections or infection of implanted prostheses, intravascular devices or foreign bodies. A thorough diagnostic evaluation with early focus identification is mandatory to improve patient outcome. We report a case of a 68-year old patient with a history of double allogeneic stem cell transplant for acute myeloid leukemia who developed a S. aureus bacteremia with dissemination, severe sepsis and lethal outcome due to nasal handkerchief packing after nose bleeding. A thorough medical examination with further diagnostic work-up is most important in S. aureus blood stream infection to identify and eradicate the portal(s) of entry, to rule out endocarditis, to search for spinal abscesses, osteomyelitis or spondylodiscitis. Adherence to management guides for clinicians must be of major importance to achieve optimal quality of clinical care, and thus improve patient outcome.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 September 2018.
All research outputs
#7,310,802
of 12,673,944 outputs
Outputs from Infection
#552
of 864 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#135,618
of 264,070 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Infection
#4
of 17 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,673,944 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 864 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 264,070 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 17 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
