Perichondritis

R.E.B.E.L.EM - July 20, 2017
"Take-Home Points:
  • Perichondritis is a pseudomonal infection of the outer ear marked by tenderness and erythema and distinguished by a spared lobule.
  • Misdiagnosis or mistreatment can result in devastating patient outcomes.
  • Treatment of perichondritis includes a foundation of anti-pseudomonal antibiotic therapy with or without surgical intervention.
  • Urgent specialist evaluation and hospital admission should be considered when abscess or necrosis are suspected or patient follow-up may be challenging.
  • Fluoroquinolone therapy appears safe in pediatric populations in the context of appropriate monitoring and follow-up."
