Bacterial skin and soft tissue infections in older adults.
Clin Geriatr Med. 2013 May;29(2):443-59
Authors: Compton GA
This article focuses on the clinical manifestations of the more common geriatric skin and soft tissue infections caused by direct invasion of the skin by bacteria. The approach will enable the clinician to create a differential diagnosis to choose the proper empiric therapy. Less common conditions will be mentioned in passing principally as part of a differential. Fungal and viral skin infections are covered in other articles in this edition.
