What's Your Diagnosis?

McKeehen, Barbara

Collapse Box


A 33-year-old Caucasian woman was referred to the dermatology clinic for abscesses of the dorsal nose and left medial upper arm, which developed about 1 month prior. Earlier in the month, she presented to an emergency room, where she had incision and drainage of 7.3 ml of pus from nasal abscess and was discharged with sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. Pain worsened, and she was admitted for intravenous antibiotics. Treatment was unsuccessful.
