Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A 55-year-old diabetic Malay lady was admitted to orthopaedic ward with an abscess following a domestic cat bite. On laboratory examination her C-reactive protein was elevated (17.29 mg/dL) in blood and Pasturella multocida bacteria was identified from pus of the abscess. The patient was treated with amoxicillin-clavulanic acid and discharged well. A cat was considered as carrier of Pasturella multocida and as a source of zoonotic infection.
