Event Description
It was reported in a journal article that the patient underwent an elective orthopedic surgery on an unknown date between 2013 to 2016 and topical skin adhesive was used. The patient experienced an allergic contact dermatitis to the topical skin adhesive. The patient possibly developed mild/moderate/severe reaction. The patient underwent careful removal of the prineo skin adhesive and underwent dressing changes daily and treated two times daily with a layer of 0. 05 clobetasol cream and 2 layers of vanicream and covered with a towel soaked in water and white vinegar. It was possible that the patient was treated with oral antihistamines/topical steroids/oral corticosteroids/ intravenous or oral antibiotics and was possibly referred to dermatology due to suspicion of potential cellulitis. It was possible that the patient was evaluated for prosthetic joint infection with inflammatory markers and possibly underwent a total knee arthroplasty joint arthrocentesis to evaluate for infection. It was also possible that the developed a subcutaneous fluid collection at the incision site at 6 weeks postoperatively and underwent reoperation for irrigation, debridement, and primary closure which was potentially related to the allergic contact dermatitis. All symptoms resolved at a mean of 22 days. Additional information has been requested.
