Morsures animales et humaines : que faire et à quoi penser ?

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2019, vol. 15, no. 646, p. 780-785
Abstract Animal and human bites are a common cause of admission to the emergency room and the infections are common, although they are often trivialized. Complications can range from simple cellulitis to septic shock especially in asplenic patients with Capnoyctophaga canimorsus infection. Other less common infections are possible such as rat-bite fever, leptospirosis, tularemia, and evaluation of post-exposure prophylaxis (anti-tetanus, anti-rabies, HIV, HBV) is essential. Antibiotic prophylaxis remains controversial but is recommended for certain groups of patients and must cover common bite pathogens.
