Abstract

MENEZES, Fernando Gatti et al. Ochrobactrum anthropi bacteremia in a preterm infant with cystic fibrosis. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2014, vol.45, n.2, pp.559-562.  Epub July 25, 2014. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822014005000043.

Ochrobactrum anthropi infection in newborn patients is rare, and the treatment is challenging because of its widespread and unpredictable resistance to antimicrobial agents and discrepancies between in vitro susceptibility and in vivo efficacy. We report the clinical and microbiological characteristics of Ochrobactrum anthropi bacteremia in a preterm patient.

Keywords : bacteremia; cystic fibrosis; newborn; meconium; premature birth.
