An acute abscess is due to the deposition and multiplication of pyogenic bacteria in the tissues or in inflammatory exudates.
As a result of pyogenic infection, suppuration of the labyrinth may occur.
The most common is an osteomyelitis commencing in the marrow exposed in a wound infected with pyogenic organisms.
There is also the presence of a pyogenic bacterium, by which the disease may be maintained and propagated.
Any pyogenic organism which can be carried in the blood may be deposited in the bone and produce suppuration.
pyogenic diseases result from staphylococcal osteomyelitis—chiefly of the humerus or ulna—and from gonorrhœa.
The pyogenic variety, it should be noted, cause the production of pus.
The superior sagittal or longitudinal sinus is liable to be infected from pyogenic lesions of the scalp.
Like other pyogenic infections, it may terminate in pyæmia, as a result of septic phlebitis in the marrow.
Infective conditions due to pyogenic infection (œsophagitis and peri-œsophagitis) are rare.
