Celulitis mimics

emDocs - April 3, 2017 - Author: Blumberg G - Editors: Koyfman A and Long B
"SUMMARY
  • Cellulitis and many of its mimics are characterized by rubor, tumor, calor, and dolor.
  • Location of infection and mechanism of injury often provides clues as to the diagnosis and what bacteria are implicated.
  • Cellulitis mimics include: septic bursitis, septic joint, deep vein thrombosis, phlegmasia cerulea dolens, necrotizing fasciitis, flexor tenosynovitis, fight bite, orbital cellulitis, and toxic shock syndrome. Less emergent cellulitis mimics include: erysipelas, abscess, felon, paronychia, and gouty arthritis.
  • Remember to involve your surgeon early if considering necrotizing fasciitis, septic arthritis, phlegmasia cerulea dolens, flexor tenosynovitis, fight bite, or orbital cellulitis."
