The baby developed signs of meningitis within 48 hours after birth suggesting early acquisition of the infection. Journal of Microbiology, Immunology and Infection. Initially the organism which was cultured from CSF was suspected to be Pseudomonas and therapy was changed to carbenicillin and tobramycin.

Antimicrobial treatment of Flavobacterium meningosepticum infection.

However, some significant differences are observed between the Flavobacterium and human structures. The other eight patients suffered nosocomial bacteremia within a mean period of Meningitis in a new born due to Flavobacterium meningosepticum. At the meeting of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes, the organization’s subcommittee on the taxonomy of Flavobacterium and Cytophaga-like bacteria named J.

Apneic episodes of seconds occurred every minutes. In all Journals A clinical analysis of 10 cases of postoperative infection with Flavobacterium meningosepticum. Research articles conducted on animals, will not flavobacterimu considered for processing or publication in the JPMA.

However, unlike many other Aeromonas species such as A. All except one patient survived without sequelae.

In general, they are negative by the nitrate reductase testalthough vlavobacterium strains are positive. Bacteria plated in this way may not show yellow color. While the pathogen often results in high mortality and serious sequelae in newborns, it is also found to cause to disease in adults. Cefotaxime and Amikacin were continued after blood and CSF cultures. Two patients developed meningitis due to Flavobbacterium meningosepticum.

Subcommittee on the flavobacerium of Flavobacterium and Cytophaga -like bacteria. Automated bacterial identification system results should be observed with caution, especially when a patient with gram-negative bacteremia does not improve with broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy, because several bacteria, including Aeromonas salmonicida mistaken by ID32 GN [6] and Sphingobacterium spp.

The organism was resistant to penicillins, cephalosporins, aztreonam, imipenem, aminoglycosides and macrolides. 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 flavboacterium strains of two betalactamases: Under a microscope, E.

It may be normally present in fish and frogs ; while it may be isolated from chronic infectious states, as in the sputum of cystic fibrosis patients. Sunset appearance of eyes was present. Exchange transfusion was performed and the baby was mechanically ventilated.
