Read the abstract of the medical case
presenting as acute compartment syndrome of the lower limbs: a case report
Acute compartment syndrome is a
surgical emergency requiring immediate fasciotomy. Spontaneous onset of acute
compartment syndrome of the lower limbs is rare. We present a very rare case of
pneumococcal sepsis leading to spontaneous acute compartment syndrome.
A 40-year-old Caucasian man
presented as an emergency with spontaneous onset of pain in both legs and signs
of compartment syndrome. This was confirmed on fasciotomy. Blood culture
grew Streptococcus pneumoniae.
Sepsis should be strongly
suspected in bilateral acute compartment syndrome of spontaneous onset.
