"Key Points
  • In some cases, antibiotics alone are not adequate for infectious source control.
  • Complete exposure and skin examis crucial in making the timely diagnosis of several life-threatening diseases.
  • For many of these infections, getting a surgeon on board as soon as possible is associated with source control and reduction in both morbidity and mortality.
  • Keep a broad differential in patients presenting with apparent infection without a source, and don’t forget the possibility of not readily apparent skin and soft tissue infections."
