Humans typically acquire infection by inhalation of C burnetii in fne-particle aerosols generated from birthing fuids of infected animals during animal parturition or through inhalation of dust contaminated by these materials. Infection also can occur by exposure to contaminated materials, such as wool, straw, bedding, or laundry. Seasonal trends occur in farming areas with predictable frequency, and the disease often coincides with the lambing season in early spring. Doxycycline (2 mg/kg every 12 hours; maximum 100 mg/ dose) is the drug of choice for severe infections in patients of any age and treatment is recommended for 14 days (see Tetracyclines, p 801). Children younger than 8 years of age with mild illness, pregnant women, and patients allergic to doxycycline can be treated with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. Chronic Q fever is much more diffcult to treat, and relapses can occur despite appropriate therapy, necessitating repeated courses of therapy. Improved prescreening of animal herds used by research facilities may decrease the risk of infection. Special safety practices are recommended for nonpropagative laboratory procedures involving C burnetii and for all propagative procedures, necropsies of infected animals, and manipulation of infected human and animal tissues. Vaccines for domestic animals and people working in high-risk occupations have been developed but are not licensed in the United States. The differential diagnosis of acute encephalitic illnesses of unknown cause 2 1 For further information, see Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Between 2000 and 2009, 24 of 31 cases of human rabies reported in the United States were acquired indigenously. Historically, 2 cases of human rabies were attributable to probable aerosol exposure in laboratories, and 2 unusual cases have been attributed to possible airborne exposures in caves inhabited by millions of bats, although alternative infection routes cannot be dis counted. Transmission also has occurred by transplantation of organs, corneas, and other tissues from patients dying of undiagnosed rabies. Rabies may occur in woodchucks or other large rodents in areas where raccoon rabies is common. The virus is present in saliva and is transmitted by bites or, rarely, by contami nation of mucosa or skin lesions by saliva or other potentially infectious material (eg, neu ral tissue). No case of human rabies in the United States has been attributed to a dog, cat, or ferret that has remained healthy throughout the standard 10-day period of confnement. Suspected rabid animals should be euthanized in a manner that preserves brain tissue for appropriate laboratory diagnosis. Virus can be isolated in suckling mice or in tissue culture from saliva, brain, and other specimens and can be detected by identifcation of viral antigens or nucleotides in affected tissues. Diagnosis in suspected human cases can be made postmortem by either immunofuores cent or immunohistochemical examination of brain tissue. Laboratory personnel should be consulted before submission of specimens to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention so that appropriate collection and transport of materials can be arranged. Since 2004, 2 adolescent females and an 8-year-old girl, all of whom had not received rabies postexposure prophylaxis, survived rabies after receipt of a combination of sedation and intensive medical intervention. Education of children to avoid contact with stray or wild animals is of primary importance. Similarly, chimneys and other poten tial entrances for wildlife, including bats, should be identifed and covered. The decision to immunize a potentially exposed person should be made in consultation with the local health department, which can provide information on risk of rabies in a particular area for each species of animal and in accordance with the guidelines in Table 3. In the United States, all mammals are believed to be susceptible, but bats, raccoons, skunks, and foxes are more likely to be infected than are other animals. Coyotes, cattle, dogs, cats, ferrets, and other animals occasionally are infected. Additional factors must be consid ered when deciding whether immunoprophylaxis is indicated.

Caution should be exercised when interpreting the signifcance of isolation of Neisseria organisms, because N gonorrhoeae can be confused with other Neisseria species that colonize the genitourinary tract or pharynx. Interpretation of culture of N gonorrhoeae from the pharynx of young children necessitates particular caution because of the high carriage rate of nonpathogenic Neisseria species and the serious impli cations of such a culture result. Culture is the most widely used test for identifying N gonorrhoeae from nongenital sites, and specimens also should be sent for antimicrobial susceptibility testing to aid in man agement should infection persist following initial therapy. Cultures should be performed on genital, rectal, and pharyngeal swab specimens for all patients before antimicrobial treat ment is given. Because of the high prevalence of penicillin-, tetracycline-, and quinolone-resistant N gonorrhoeae, an extended-spectrum cephalosporin (eg, ceftriaxone, cefxime) is recom mended as initial therapy for children and adults (see Table 3. Antimicrobial 2 resistance is widespread in many parts of the world, so treatment recommendations may vary depending on where infection was acquired. Cefxime is recommended for uncomplicated gonococcal infections of the vagina, pubertal cervix, urethra, and rectum of a prepubertal child. All patients beyond the neonatal period with gonorrhea should be treated presumptively for C trachomatis infection (see Chlamydia trachomatis, p 276). A single dose of ceftriaxone, spectinomycin, or azithromycin is not effec tive treatment for concurrent infection with syphilis (see Syphilis, p 690). Infants with clinical evidence of ophthalmia neonatorum, scalp abscess, or disseminated infections attributable to N gonorrhoeae should be hospitalized. Infants with gonococcal ophthalmia should be hospitalized and evaluated for disseminated infection (sepsis, arthritis, meningitis). Recommendations for treatment of gonococcal infections, by age and weight, are given in Tables 3. Special Problems in Treatment of Children (Beyond the Neonatal Period) and Adolescents. Patients with uncomplicated infections of the vagina, endocervix, urethra, or anorectum and a history of severe adverse reactions to cephalosporins (anaphylaxis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and toxic epidermal necrolysis) should be treated with spectinomycin (40 mg/ kg, maximum 2 g, given intramuscularly as a single dose), if available (spectinomycin cur rently is not available in the United States). Patients with uncomplicated pharyngeal gonococcal infection should be treated with ceftriaxone (Table 3. Spectinomycin is approximately 50% effective for treatment of pharyngeal gonorrhea, so it should be used only in people with a his tory of severe cephalosporin allergy, and a pharyngeal culture should be obtained 3 to 5 days after treatment to verify eradication; spectinomycin currently is not available in the United States. The effcacy of topical prophylaxis in preventing chlamydial ophthalmia is less clear, likely because colonization of the nasopharynx is not prevented. When prophylaxis is administered correctly, infants born to mothers with gonococcal infection rarely develop gonococcal ophthalmia. All pregnant women at risk of gonorrhea or living in an area in which the prevalence of N gonorrhoeae is high should have an endocervical culture for gonococci at the time of their frst prenatal visit. Other options for pregnant women with severe cephalosporin allergy include cephalosporin treatment after desensitization or azithromycin (2 g, orally). Use of this approach always should be accompanied by efforts to educate partners about symptoms and to encourage partners to seek clinical evaluation. Lesions usually involve genitalia, but anal infections occur in 5% to 10% of patients; lesions at distant sites (eg, face, mouth, or liver) are rare. Infection usually is acquired by sexual intercourse, most commonly with a person with active infection but possibly also from a person with asymptomatic rectal infection. The period of communicability extends throughout the duration of active lesions or rectal colonization. The microorganism also can be detected by histologic examination of biopsy specimens. Diagnosis by poly merase chain reaction assay and serologic testing is available only in research laboratories. Doxycycline should not be given to children younger than 8 years of age or to pregnant women. Trimethoprim sulfamethoxazole is an alternative regimen, except in pregnant women. Ciprofoxacin, which is not recommended for use in pregnant or lactating women or children younger than 18 years of age, is effective. Erythromycin or azithromycin is an alternative therapy for pregnant women or women who are infected with human immunodefciency virus. Patients should be evaluated for other sexually transmitted infections, such as gonor rhea, syphilis, chancroid, chlamydia, hepatitis B virus, and human immunodefciency virus infections.

It contains step-by-step instructions for the tasks related to production activities. Considering the perceived need to ensure the quality standards of each radiolabelled particle, sometimes it is essential to change the product specifications, manufacturing or control procedures. Written procedures should be in place to justify such modification/alteration, and documented appropriately [504]: 92 Special attention should be given to undertake a review of a representative number of batches either approved or rejected, and a summary of the records associated with the batch must be documented; and There should be established written procedures to review and update regarding complaints, recalls, and returned or salvaged radiolabelled particles. Based on the related investigations, corrective and preventative actions should be taken to allow trend analysis. All production, quality control, and product distribution must have mandatory records for regulatory compliance and should be retained for at least 1-year post expiration date of each batch. Batch records Batch production records constitute a written document of each production batch, prepared during the production of radioactive particles. It contains the following: a sequential data pertaining to each chemical and radioisotope used for production; complete information related to the production; and control of each batch of radiolabelled particles. It constitutes the documentation pertaining to the step by step manufacturing process of each batch. The batch production record needs to be checked before the delivery of products to ensure that it is the accurate version. If the batch production record is gathered from a discrete part of the master document, that document should comprise a reference to the current master production document being used [504]. Prior to the preparation of radioactive particles, there should be a checklist of all equipment and workstation prepared to ensure that they are clear of previous products and suitable for use. Data entry of each batch should be made in chronological order to ensure traceability. Recording of the batch number, including product code, date and time of production, and batch size, either in a logbook or by electronic data processing system, is to be carried out immediately [504]. This include the following [504]: Dates and times (when appropriate); Characteristics of major equipment used for formulation of radiolabelled particles. If needed, it may permit recall of any batch; Release or rejection of the batch must be duly signed by the responsible personnel with the date; and All essential information of the production record review. Accurate reviewing of production batch records and quality control records is mandatory as part of the approval process of batch release. Investigation including both the conclusion and follow-up action in the form of written record should be made. As part of the approval process of batch release, it is crucial to review the production and quality control records. Any deviation from the product specifications of a batch should be scrutinized scrupulously. The investigation made including the conclusion and follow-up action should be in the form of written record [504]. As such, requirements for qualifications, training and development of all employees involved in radioactive particle preparation must be met to ensure that employees can aptly perform their assigned tasks according to their position. Refresher training is carried out whenever there is a major procedural change on the preparation of radiolabelled particles. These trainings are not only assessed, but also documented; (2) External training: the concerned head of the department of a radiological laboratory usually nominates people for external training, depending on the type and need of the training. Specific training may be either on the job or classroom training, and it is documented; (4) On the job training: on the job training is carried out in the radiological laboratory, wherever applicable. It is assessed by the trainer with an assessment or a demonstration of the radiological procedure by the trainee and the same is documented in the assessment record; (5) Safety training: the radiological laboratory identifies those who need to have radiological safety training, which may be given individually or to a group of employees in the same or related occupations. The topics approached will be defined according to the existing radiological risks and complexities. It should be based on a training plan for the employee about the analysis of the employee training record v/s the training requirements for the new job is prepared; and (7) Training to contract/temporary employees: this type of training possesses a special challenge for most departments as they are transient.

The serum and tissue concentrations were adequate only when 2g of cefazolin were administered. Also, relative to 1g, the administration of cefazolin 2g decreased the wound infection rate from 16. The authors measured concentrations in the serum skin, adipose tissue, and omentum, but did not evaluate unbound cefazolin concentrations, which may be expected to 159 migrate across tissues rapidly. What should the choice of perioperative prophylactic antibiotics be in these patients Question 18: What is the recommended prophylaxis, in patients undergoing major orthopaedic reconstructions for either tumor or non-neoplastic conditions using megaprosthesis Delegate Vote: Agree: 93%, Disagree: 6%, Abstain: 1% (Strong Consensus) Justification: Deep infection has been reported as being one of the most common complications following endoprosthetic replacement of large bone defects, ranging between 5% 162-166 35% in some series. Reinfection rates after revision surgery for endoprosthetic infection 165 have been reported as high as 43%. The patients will receive either short (24 h) or long (5 days) duration postoperative antibiotics. Secondary outcomes will include type and frequency of antibiotic-related adverse events, patient functional outcomes and quality-of-life 167 scores, reoperation and mortality. Another area of development involves silver coating of foreign materials, such as heart valves, cardiac catheters, and urinary catheters that has shown the ability to reduce the infection rate of medical devices; therefore, a logical extension of this work was to translate this concept to the 168, 169 field of endoprosthetics. Recently iodine-supported titanium implants have been also effective for preventing and treating infections after major 170, 171 orthopaedic surgery. In a rabbit study, the infection rate of silver-coated versus noncoated prostheses after inoculation with Staphylococcus aureus was determined and the silver concentrations in blood, urine, and organs with possible toxic side effects were documented. Furthermore, measurements of C reactive protein, neutrophilic leukocytes, rectal temperature, and body weight showed significantly lower (p<0. In a second study, authors analyzed the potential toxicological side effects of these implants and found that the silver concentration in blood (median 1. The same group reported a lack of toxicological side effects of silver-coated megaprostheses in 173 20 patients with bone metastases. Acute infection developed only in 3 tumor cases and one diabetic foot among the 257 patients. Gosheger reviewed 197 patients with megaprostheses and discovered that those with cobalt 176 chrome implants had more infections than those with titanium implants. Question 19: Should antibiotic prophylaxis be different in patients who have reconstruction by bulk allograft Consensus: We recommend the use of routine antibiotic prophylaxis in patients who have reconstruction by bulk allograft. Bulk allograft is in essence is a large foreign body and therefore represents a nidus for deep infection following surgery, apart from the prosthetic components. However, there is a growing body of literature to support the use of antibiotic-impregnated allograft in the revision setting as a means of decreasing infection rates. In addition, there are several reports of using antibiotic impregnated graft substitute or grafts as a way to fill bony defects and promote bony ingrowth while delivering supratherapeutic doses of antibiotics to the local environment in cases of osteomyelitis. In 75 consecutive patients (80 96 hips), followed for a mean of 36 months (range 24-59 months), deep infection occurred in one patient for an incidence of infection of 1. Question 20: Do patients with poorly controlled diabetes, immunosuppression, or autoimmune disease require a different perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis A recent retrospective cohort study within the Kaiser Healthcare system found no significant increase in risk of revision or deep infection or revision whether patients had controlled (HbA1c<7%) or uncontrolled diabetes (HbA1c>7%). Asplenic patients are at increased risk of infection by encapsulated bacteria; and although there is evidence to support vaccinations and penicillin prophylaxis in patients under 16 and over 50 years of age, there is no consensus on the appropriate perioperative management of these immunocompromised patients. They found that patients with renal failure had a significantly increased risk of early infection (1. Eight infections were caused by gram-positive organisms, 2 were caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria, and the remaining 2 were culture negative. In this series, prophylactic antibiotics 99 were administered for at least 48 hours or until the drains were removed and bone cement when 209 used was not impregnated with antibiotics. Most isolates are resistant to fluoroquinolones, aminoglycosides, and co-trimoxazole. Some isolates are susceptible to amikacin and gentamicin and most are susceptible to colistin and 214, 217-219 tigecycline.
