Abscess Caused by Citrobacter koseri Infection: Three Case Reports and a Literature Review.

Summary of "Abscess Caused by Citrobacter koseri Infection: Three Case Reports and a Literature Review."

In this report, we present 3 cases of abscess caused by Citrobacter koseri. All infected patients recovered after initial empirical antibiotic treatment and percutaneous drainage of the abscess. We reviewed the literature and found 9 adult cases of C. koseri abscess. Most of these patients recovered after timely antibiotic treatment and drainage.
