Dog Bite Septicemia Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) from Capnocytophaga Septicemia in an Asplenic Patient Presented by Ariel L. Sarmiento, MPH Region 1 Epidemiologist ( Ballard • Carlisle • Calloway • Fulton • Graves • Hickman Marshall • McCracken ) Epi Rapid Response Team Annual Conference August 30th, 2005 Frankfort, KY :  Dog Bite Septicemia Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) from Capnocytophaga Septicemia in an Asplenic Patient Presented by Ariel L. Sarmiento, MPH Region 1 Epidemiologist ( Ballard • Carlisle • Calloway • Fulton • Graves • Hickman Marshall • McCracken ) Epi Rapid Response Team Annual Conference August 30th, 2005 Frankfort, KY Introduction:  Introduction Septicemia in pts. with Hx of splenectomy well documented in published literature much rarer, septicemia cases leading to deaths secondary to dog or cat bites also well documented Most common organism involved is Capnocytophaga canimorsus or others that are of the same species (Sarma, P., Mohanty S., 2001) Introduction:  Introduction C. canimorsus (formerly known an Dysgonic fermenter 2 [Df2]) part of canine and feline normal flora (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,1992) With asplenic humans, pathogen can be deadly (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,1992) Epidemiology of Bites:  Epidemiology of Bites (CDC, 2003; PatientPlus, 2005) Most bite wounds caused by: Dogs (60 - 90%) Cats (5 - 18%) Humans (4 – 23%) In 2001, 368,245 persons in US were tx for dog bite injuries ( incidence rate of 129.3/100,000) Epidemiology of Bites:  Epidemiology of Bites Only 20% of people bitten by a dog seek medical help 1% of these people require hospitalization Around 42% of dog bites occur among children aged < 14 years, most often from a household pet Epidemiology of Bites:  Epidemiology of Bites More than 70% of animal bites are caused by family pets or animals known to the person Incidence of dog bites increases during April to September (warmer months– dog bite prevention is in May) Most common injuries are to the arm and/or hand Epidemiology of Bites:  Epidemiology of Bites Most common circumstances surrounding dog bites involving adults: Trying to help an injured dog Breaking up a fight between dogs Literature Review:  Literature Review Texas, early 90’s (August, J., 1990) 28 y.o.  Dog groomer in Vet clinic Bitten in forearm by 2 y.o. male cocker spaniel Bite wound area cleansed with povidone-iodine Started Sx 3 days later: c/o chills, malaise, weakness, ↑pain at bite site Hx of splenectomy discovered when surgical scar was observed in upper L quadrant of abdomen, spouse provided info upon questioning Literature Review:  Literature Review Texas, early 90’s(cont’d)… IV penicillin treatment started after blood and CSF specimens were collected Capnocytophaga canimorsus (then known as Dysgonic-fermenter 2) isolated after 5 days from pt specimen Pt recovered after antimicrobial therapy and treatment for renal failure without further complication Literature Review:  Literature Review New Mexico, June 1992 (CDC, 1992) 50 y. o.  Initially diagnosed as plague resulting to septicemia Undetermined source of infection with possibilities arising from dog bite: Pt owned several dogs Add’l Hx provided by family indicated a swollen thumb Hx of chronic alcohol consumption 4 – 6 drinks/day c/o of epigastric pain, nausea, fever, chills, rash Literature Review:  Literature Review New Mexico, June 1992 (cont’d…) Tx with IV antibiotics but died of acute renal failure and acute respiratory distress syndrome 3 days after ER presentation No Hx of splenectomy or immunosuppression Autopsy reports confirmed internal hemmorhage consistent with gram negative sepsis (DIC) Capnocytophaga canimorsus (then known as DF2) isolated from blood and CSF culture Literature Review:  Literature Review June 2004 (Deshmukh, P., et al, 2004) 45 y.o.  Employed by animal shelter where she was bitten by a dog No Hx of splenectomy,immunosuppresion, alcohol abuse, or costicosteroid therapy Pt presented to ER late in the course of infection This may have greatly contributed to her death Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology:  Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology Previously classified by CDC as part of Group Dysgonic Fermenter-2 (DF-2) Slow growing gram negative rod-shaped bacterium Fastidious -- requires CO2 for growth Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology:  Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology:  Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology Isolated from saliva of healthy dogs and cats as part of normal flora Human normal oral flora may also contain Capnocytophaga spp. – documented to cause periodontal disease Susceptible to various antibiotics: penicillin, amoxicillin, erythromycin, tetracycline, cefoxitine and clindamycin Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology:  Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology Opportunistic pathogen with low virulence except in susceptible hosts: Asplenia: splenectomy due to either abdominal trauma or underlying medical disorders (the latter being more susceptible to opportunistic infections) Splenectomized individuals are 30 to 200 times more prone to die from bacterial infections; highest is during 1st 2 years after splenectomy Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology:  Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology These individuals do not produce enough IgM and IgG2 (the spleen produces B cells which develop into antibody-producing plasma cells, memory cells) Also delayed macrophage mobilization (key defense against bacterial infection) occurs (spleen along with the liver contain macrophages that engulf and destroy foreign particulates such as bacteria in the bloodstream) Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology:  Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology Other high risk variables: Immunocompromised status (AIDS, chronic diabetes, etc) Chronic alcohol abuse Chronic pulmonary disease Hematologic malignancies Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology:  Capnocytophaga Canimorsus: Microbiology and Pathology First known case of infection was in 1976 when organism was isolated from a pt’s CSF and blood (August, J., year unknown). Case Report:  Case Report Pt. Demographics/Medical Hx 32 y. o.,  with Hx of splenectomy (done 5 years prior due to abdominal trauma) Hx of illness Pt woke up at 3 am, c/o fever, body aches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea x 10, hot and cold, chills and shaking, dizziness after each diarrhea episode Case Report:  Case Report Hx of illness (cont’d…) Presented at ER afternoon of same day Admitted to surgical floor with a Dx of gastroenteritis probably of viral etiology No Hx of ingestion of possibly contaminated food Case Report:  Case Report Course of action, treatment, death No Hx of close associates or family members having enteric illness or Sx thereof Upon admission, immediately Tx for dehydration Given Hx of splenectomy, blood cultures were ordered to check for bacterial infection Case Report:  Case Report Course of action, treatment, death (cont’d…) CBC differential ordered @ 8 PM, Pt eventually revealed Hx of dog bite 2 days ago Extremities had already turned blue and mottled suggesting compromised peripheral circulation Case Report:  Case Report Course of action, treatment, death (cont’d…) Thereafter, aggressive IV Tx with antimicrobials was initiated Now evident that pt. had septic picture from a dog bite Now treated as a “life-threatening” event because of asplenic state Pt condition deteriorated rapidly Case Report:  Case Report Course of action, treatment, death (cont’d…) Pt transferred to CCU, ambu-bagged, intubated CPR performed, add’l epinephrine, bicarbonate, atropine administered then electric shock Code called at 11:09 pm Blood culture grew Capnocytophaga canimorsus Case Report:  Case Report Autopsy Confirmed Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC) as cause of death Scabbed wounds on medial aspect of L hand consistent with dog bite Discussions:  Discussions DIC as cause of death: Mechanism of syndrome Uncontrolled proliferation of pathogen in the bloodstream aided by asplenic state Gram negative bacteria (as in this case) produces a certain endotoxin Endotoxin activates several steps in coagulation process Uncontrolled coagulation cascade occurs Can result to multiple organ failure due to compromised circulation Peripheral circulation also compromised End-stage of DIC occurs: coagulation factors are depleted resulting to massive internal hemorrhage Discussion:  Discussion Late discovery of dog bite Hx Narrative on dog bite Hx Pt’s dog got into a fight with 2 other neighborhood dogs, pt intervened and got bitten by own dog in the process Dog initially quarantined but turned up clinically healthy (“rabies-free”) with up-to-date Hx of vaccination Description of wound not severe (physical appearance) Initially not thought of as serious by patient Discussion:  Discussion Consultation with Frankfort Dr. Auslander’s knowledge bank: LHD was informed by Hospital ICN the morning after pt’s death Hospital staff members were puzzled by the events LHD consulted with Dr. Auslander who readily recognized the s/sx of sepsis due to C. canimorsus LHD received literature from Dr. Auslander and it was immediately shared with hospital staff Conclusions and Recommendations:  Conclusions and Recommendations Protocols on prophylaxis for asplenic pts?
