Recently diagnosed with gastric adenocarcinoma 1 month prior s/p port placement GI was consulted on admission and elected to perform upper GI series which revealed moderate gastric outlet obstruction Patient was to begin neoadjuvant chemo and GI elected not to place a stent due to the possibility of stent migration

HPI continued 2 days after admission the patient developed right neck pain and swelling U/S RUE revealed an occlusive thrombi in the right jugular and subclavian vein Heparin was started 2 days later the patient developed a fever with leukocytosis UA and CXR were negative Blood cultures and urine cultures were drawn Patient was started on vancomycin HPI continued Blood culture gram stain showed (port)

GPC in pairs and chains Culture (aerobic bottle): enterococcus faecalis UC negative ID was consulted History Continued PMH Recently diagnosed gastric adenocarcinoma

thrombophlebitis and to assess for surgical intervention TTE and if negative TEE CT abd/pelvis Enterococcus faecalis Bacteremia As above Continued BC: enterococcus faecalis Amp S Linezolid S Cipro S Imepenem DS Tetracycline R

Vanc S Repeat BC negative Continued Patient remained afebrile and no leukocytosis on labs Primary team discontinued vanc and started ampicillin TTE negative for vegetation Port was removed(no mention of exudates on op note, tip not cultured), left IJ placed, received neoadjuvant chemo cycle #1 out of 4 (cisplatin/taxoterene) Patient developed tinnitus Vascular evaluated and could not assess for septic thrombophlebitis. No surgical intervention. CT abd/pelvis negative

Official Recs Since septic thrombophlebitis cannot be ruled out ID recommend 6 wks of IV daptomycin 6mg/kg Q24hrs vs 12 wks IV amp and vanc (tinnitus) Patient was d/c to CLC with 6 wks IV dapto with weekly labs including CBC, CMP, ESR, CRP, and CK Septic Thrombophlebitis Definition: Venous thrombosis associated with inflammation in the setting of bacteremia Suspect in a patient with

Persistent bacteremia (after 72 hrs) with appropriate antimicrobial therapy and in a pt with a venous catheter Types Peripheral Jugular Vena cava Portal vein

Pelvic Veins Peripheral ST Incidence is highest in: Burn victims Steroid IV drug users Complications: Septic Emboli Endocarditis Arteritis

Patent foramen ovale Microbiology Staph aureus Strep Gram neg Peripheral ST Diagnosis Culture

BC Culture exudates Venous aspirate culture Vein culture Positive imaging

u/s- can also be helpful to detect underlying abscess High resolution CT- filling defect, thrombus, soft tissue swelling MRI Peripheral ST Treatment Cover staph: vancomycin Cover gram neg: rocephin Tailor abx to sensitivities but remember staph

Jugular vein ST Incidence highest in: Pharyngitis Dental infections Infectious mononucleosis IV catheters Usually caused by migration of bacteria through deep tissues (pharynx to lateral pharyngeal space) Microbiology Oral Flora

Most Common: Fusobacterium Necrophorum Jugular vein ST Diagnosis BC + imaging Antimicrobials B lactamase resistant B lactams

Unasym (amp/sulbactam) Zosyn Carbapenems Vancomycin Pelvic vein Pelvic ST Peripartum (hypercoagulability and venous stasis)and typically occur within 3 wks of delivery Endometritis C section PID Diverticulitis

appendicitis Pathogens Staph Strep Anaerobes Portal vein Intrabdominal infections such as diverticulitis and appendicitis Signs

Hepatomegaly jaundice Pathogens Bacteroides Fragilis E coli Klebsiella Imaging

CT MRI- thickening and enhancement of the vessel wall Caveats Anticoagulation Controversial but recommended if there is evidence of extension of the thrombus Surgery
