Erysipelas

Erysipelas is a form of superficial cellulitis (cellulitis) with the participation of dermal lymphatic system.

Erysipelas should not be confused with the Erysipeloid, a skin infection with Erysipelothrix (Erysipelothrikose). Erysipelas is clinically characterized by bright red, shiny, raised, indurated, druckdolente plaque-like lesions with a sharp boundary. There is also a bullous form of erysipelas. The erysipelas is usually caused by ?-hemolytic streptococcus group A (rare group C or G) and occurs on the legs and face most often. However, other causes have been reported, including Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin-resistant S. aureus [MRSA]), Klebsiella pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Escherichia coli, S. warneri, Streptococcus pneumoniae, S. pyogenes, and Moraxella sp. The erysipelas must be distinguished from a herpes zoster, angioedema, and contact dermatitis. It is often accompanied by high fever, chills and malaise. MRSA is in erysipelas frequently than in erysipelas of the lower limbs. Erysipelas may recur and lead to chronic lymphedema.
