Adjuvant Therapies for Dermal Sinus Tracts in Children

This page was last updated on May 9th, 2017


  • Antibiotics: Infections of dermal sinus tracts often involve multiple organisms including some that are gram negative . Anaerobic infections are rare. Empiric therapy is recommended until more specific anti-infective therapy is guided by the culture results (8). This is especially important in cases of abscess formation or meningitis.
  • Steroids: Perioperative dexamethasone is advised at some centers in cases of progressive neurological deficits.
