Medical Definition of Soft tissue infections

1. Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the faecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (12 Dec 1998)
