Abstract

Cellulitis and erysipelas are local soft tissue infections that occur following the entry of bacteria through a disrupted skin barrier. These infections are relatively common and early diagnosis is essential to treatment success. As dermatologists, we need to be familiar with the clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of these infections. In this article, we provide a review of the literature and update on clinical manifestations, predisposing factors, microbiology, diagnosis, treatment, and complications. We also review the current situation in Chile.

En este trabajo, se realiza una revisión de la literatura y actualización en el tema que incluye: manifestaciones clínicas, factores predisponentes, microbiología, diagnóstico, tratamiento y complicaciones. Además, se realiza una revisión de la situación bacteriológica actual en Chile.
