SEPSIS the doctor’s dilemma

WHAT DO 18th century philosopher and women’s rights activist Mary Wollstonecraft, Superman actor Christopher Reeve, First World War poet Rupert Brooke, King Alexander of Greece, Brazilian footballer Socrates and legendary boxer Mohammad Ali have in common?

It sounds like some left field pub quiz question but the answer is something more prosaic yet serious and sinister. They all died as a result of overwhelming infection - sepsis.

Wollstonecraft died of sepsis secondary to child birth; Reeve died of sepsis secondary to a pressure sore; Brooke died of sepsis secondary to a mosquito bite; King Alexander died of sepsis secondary to a monkey bite; Socrates died of sepsis secondary to a bout of food poisoning; and Muhammed Ali died of sepsis secondary to a chest infection.
