I was desperately looking for cellulitis. I never did see it. Some say I'm still looking for it to this day.

welpdedelp  Same lol. A question I had was I thought lymphangitis was supposed to precede some sort of injury, obv not lol but was the lymph node the main giveaway? +  
keyseph  I think the key distinguishing features are the red streaks leading to an area of local lymphadenopathy. Otherwise, cellulitis would be a viable option if given. +

  • Patient with an inflammed area of the distal radius with red streaks extending from the area towards the elbow, most consistent with lymphangitis
  • Key idea: Most common pathogens are MSSA and Group A strep, and therefore empiric treatment is cephalexin
