Intertrigos à Bacille Gram-négatif : étude rétrospective descriptive multicentrique de 62 patients

Abstract : Gram-negative toe-web infection can be challenging, especially because of frequency of relapse due to persistent predisposing factors. We conducted a retrospective multicenter study to describe clinical features and management of Gram-negative toe-web infection and evaluate predisposing factors and associated diseases, their management and the effect of controlling them on rates of recurrence. Among 62 patients included (sex-ratio 9/1), 31 experienced more than one episode. Predisposing factors/associated diseases were eczema (66%), suspected tinea pedis (58%), local conditions of humidity (42%), hyperhidrosis (16%), and psoriasis (11%), often associated to each other. Vascular disorders (40%), not reported before, seemed here to be a relevant predisposing factor. Patients with associated diseases controlled, mainly inflammatory skin diseases such as eczema or psoriasis, did not relapse, suggesting the benefit value of such management. This led us to propose a standardized management focused on diagnosis and management of associated diseases and prospective evaluation of it on recurrence rate.
