A Rare Case of Nosocomial Urosepsis in an Elderly Patient: Sphingomonas Paucimobilis

Sphingomonas paucimobilis is an aerobic, non-fermentative, non-spore-forming, yellow-pigmented, very slow-moving, Gram-negative bacillus. Sphingomonas paucimobilis can cause bacteremia, pneumonia, catheter-related bloodstream infections, meningitis, peritonitis, osteomyelitis, septic arthritis, postoperative endophthalmitis, lung and spleen abscesses, and urinary and biliary system infections. It can lead to infections in healthy and immunocompromised individuals through a variety of mechanisms. This report describes a rare case of urosepsis due to Sphingomonas paucimobilis.
