Time course of changes in P-SEP and CPR after the transfer to the general ward. Debridement was performed on day 34. Later, C-reactive protein (CRP) was 0.4–1.1 mg/dL, but P-SEP fluctuated between 350 and 380 pg/mL. On day 50, CT revealed a residual abscess. Therefore, we performed the second debridement on day 60. After that, P-SEP gradually decreased.
