Pyaemia is a type of blood infection that leads to widespread abscesses of a metastatic nature. It is usually caused by the staphylococcus bacteria or by pus-forming organisms in the blood. It is a life-threatening condition that ascends when the bodys response to infection caused by bacteria causes injury to its own tissues and organs. Early recognition and focused management may improve the outcomes in this case. Apart from the timely administration of fluids and antibiotics, the management of Pyaemia also involves surgical Incision and drainage of infected fluid collections.
