[Apropos of a case of infection after esthetic rhinoplasty]
Journal - Annales de chirurgie plastique et esthétique (FRANCE )
Infection after rhinoplasty is infrequent occurring in less than 1% of cases. When it does occur it may be due to devascularised spicule of bone or in a hematoma. Of much less frequent occurrence is the toxic shock syndrome associated or not with nasal packing and due to staphylococcus aureus. When administering prophylactic antibiotic in nasal surgery one must take into consideration their own hazards: drug reaction, candida infection or resistant staphylococcus aureus.
