Flavobacterium meningosepticum Meningitis: Report of Selected Aspects

Clinical manifeatationa and treatment. Nosocomial meningitis of the newborn caused by a flavobacterium. Meningsepticum meningitis of the newS horn caused by flavobacteria.

Journal of Clinical Microbiology.

Flavobacterium meningosepticum from neonatal meningitis. The results confirm the suitability of the bacterial enzyme as a model to study the consequences of mutations in aspartylglycosaminuria patients. In other projects Wikispecies. Hypoalbuminemia, increased pulse rate at the onset of infection, and central venous line infection were associated with a poor outcome.

Most of these are classic drugs for gram positive bacteria and not routinely tested on gram negative bacteria. Fifteen patients contracted F meningosepticum from nosocomial sources.

Flavobacterium meningosepticum bacteremia: an analysis of 16 cases.

Our patient was referred from outside and did not have any identifiable risk factors for sepsis other than intrauterine growth retardation. Neonatal meningitis caused by new serotype of Flavobacterium meningo-septicum. Version format compliance Version flafobacterium. An automated but so meningksepticum relatively reliable Rapid NF plus system and API Zym systems use an array of biochemical tests for better identification of nonfermenters and other bacteria and can specifically identify E.


Only recently has it also been found to cause soft tissue infection and sepsis in the immunocompetent [9] and in a case of a fatal necrotizing fasciitis in a diabetic patient. Of them, seven were suspected to have acquired the pathogen from diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. The active site of Flavobacterium glycosylasparaginase is in an flzvobacterium conformation when compared with the human structure.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Flavobacterium meningosepticum.

In the bacterial GA crystals, we observe a heterotetrameric structure similar to that found in the human structure, as well as that observed in solution for eukaryotic glycosylasparaginases. There were 10 meningosepticuj and six women, with a mean age of A clinical analysis of 10 cases of postoperative infection with Flavobacterium meningosepticum.

KlimekEufronio Maderazoand Richard Quintiliani. We were able to sterilize the CSF in our case, but the baby developed obstructive hydrocephalus and neurological sequelae.

Bacteremia occurred in these patients within a mean period of 2. International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology. Elizabethkingia meningoseptica is a gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium widely distributed in nature e.

This bacterium is usually multiresistant to antibiotics typically prescribed for treating gram-negative bacterial infections, including extended-spectrum beta-lactam agents due to production by most strains of two betalactamases: A ventriculoperitoneal shunt was placed and child was discharged after 9 days hospitalization. The organism was resistant to penicillins, cephalosporins, aztreonam, imipenem, aminoglycosides and macrolides.

Am J Dis Child. Length and head circumference were at 25th percentile while weight was at the 5th percentile. It is usually resistant to antimicrobial agents used to treat gram-negative bacilli.
