EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT COURSE:  The case was discussed with the face surgeons on call, who agreed to follow up with the patient in five days in order to better evaluate the lip. The patient was given 500 mg of Cipro, a gram of azithromycin, and 2 grams of Flagyl while in the emergency department. She was also given two Percocets for her pain, and her tetanus was updated.

MEDICAL DECISION MAKING:  The patient is a middle-aged woman with two complaints. The first complaint is of a lip laceration. She has a rather large lip laceration that would have been primarily repaired if she had come in when she had the initial injury, but at this point, the laceration is large and appears to be infected, so we do not want to close it so that an abscess does not develop. Therefore, at this point, the patient will be covered with antibiotics and will follow up the ENT Clinic on Friday, which is five days from now. As for the patient's second complaint of lower abdominal pain, she does have what appears to be a cervicitis. Her urine also appears to be infected, so we will treat her for a urinary tract infection as well as cervicitis. Her beta hCG was negative.

1.  Lip laceration with infection.
