Hematolojik maligniteli iki hastada nadir bir hastane infeksiyonu etkeni olarak sphingomonas paucimobilis bakteremisi

Sphingomonas paucimobilis hastanelerde özellikle de immünsüprese hastaların takip edildiği hematoloji ve onkoloji ünitelerinde salgınlara yol açabilen gram-negatif bir basildir. Bu çalışmada farklı zamanlarda iki hematolojik maligniteli olguda ortaya çıkan, biri primer diğeri pnömoniye sekonder olduğunu düşündüğümüz S. paucimobilis kaynaklı iki nozokomiyal bakteremi olgusu sunulmuştur.

Sphingomonas paucimobilis bacteremia: A rare cause of nosocomial infections in two cases with Hematologic malignancy

Sphingomonas paucimobilis is a gram-negative bacillus that can cause outbreaks in Hematology and Oncology units where most patients are immunosuppressed hosts. We describe here two cases of S. paucimobilis bacteremia with hematologic malignancy; one of them was primary and the other secondary to pneumonia.
