A review of 391 children in the first decade of life admitted to surgical ward with soft tissue infectious revealed predisposing factors in 34.8 per cent of cases, mainly trauma and adjacent skin sepsis. Superficial abscess formation occurred in 90 per cent of cases, muscle abscess in 9.4 per cent, and necrotizing fascitis in less than 1 per cent. The most requent organism isolated was the staphylococcus aureus which was found in 52.8 per cent of the available cultures. Coliform organisms were found in 14.6 per cent, and haemplytic streptococci in just over 10 per cent. A study of the culture and sensitivity profiles obtained made it possible to formulate a programme for the empirical treatment of soft tissue infections based on the region of the body involved.

This report describes a patient with type 3 glycogenosis diagnosed during life but who died suddenly at home and was found at necropsy to have gross cardiac involvement. The immediate cause of death was not apparent but could possibly have been related to the very unusual degree of cardiac involvement (AU)
