SOUZA, Marcus Machado Ramos Souza de et al. Bacteremia by Chryseobacterium indologenes in a diabetic patient undergoing ambulatory hemodialysis. J. Bras. Patol. Med. Lab. [online]. 2012, vol.48, n.1, pp. 29-31. ISSN 1676-2444. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1676-24442012000100006.
Chryseobacterium indologenes is a low-virulent bacterium found in the environment, which is rarely associated with non-nosocomial infections. Most infections caused by this pathogen are associated with the use of invasive devices in hospitalized patients. This study reports the case of a diabetic patient with chronic renal disease presenting episodes of bacteremia undergoing ambulatory hemodialysis with permcath catheter.
