Although they are ubiquitous to aquatic environments, Aeromonas species have traditionally been considered nonvirulent; however, in the past 30 years, they have emerged as important human pathogens that can cause a wide spectrum of disease. In this study, we describe a case of recurrent Aeromonas bacteremia in an immunocompetent patient, and this exposure was linked to the patient's home well water supply.

Bloodstream infection caused by Acinetobacter baumannii has become a major clinical concern, especially multidrug-resistant A baumannii (MDRAB). The aim of this study was to identify the risk factors ...
bacteremia is nearly always pathological and has been associated with colorectal cancer and endocarditis. Here, we present the first published case of bacteremia secondary to acute mesenteric ischemi...
Piperacillin/tazobactam has been associated with nephrotoxicity in patients receiving vancomycin. Its impact on nephrotoxicity in patients with gram-negative bacteremia (GNB) is unclear. This study ai...
Bacteremia is a major clinical challenge requiring early treatment. Metabolic alterations occur during bacteremia, and accordingly plasma concentrations of lipoproteins LDL-C and HDL-C are substantial...
Produced water (PW) from oil and gas extraction processes has been shown to contain elevated concentrations of major ions. The objective of this study was to determine the potential effects of elevate...
To assure the uniform collection, handling, storage and transport of patient whole blood specimens and associated information to support validation of the T2 Bacteremia Assay.
The presence of bacteremia and sepsis in percent of critically ill patients and none at all, associated with different expression and faction of Toll-Like-Receptors (TLRs.
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of ceftobiprole versus a comparator in hospitalized patients with bacteremia.
This study examines the clinical outcomes and healthcare costs associated with gram negative bacteremia at Duke University Medical Center from 2002-2015.
Norwalk virus and related "Norwalk-like viruses" are the most common cause of outbreaks of stomach sickness (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea) in older children and adults in the United States. ...
A persistent skin infection marked by the presence of furuncles, often chronic and recurrent. In humans, the causative agent is various species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS. In salmonid fish (SALMONIDS), the pathogen is AEROMONAS SALMONICIDA.
Contaminated water generated as a waste product of human activity.
A genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that occurs singly, in pairs, or in short chains. Its organisms are found in fresh water and sewage and are pathogenic to humans, frogs, and fish.
A species of Aeromonas that occurs mostly as single cells in soil and freshwater environments. It also inhabits the digestive tract of the leech HIRUDO MEDICINALIS, where it aids in the digestion of blood and prevents colonization by other bacteria. It is pathogenic in fish and potentially in humans who consume infected fish or immunocompromised patients receiving LEECH THERAPY.
The presence of viable bacteria circulating in the blood. Fever, chills, tachycardia, and tachypnea are common acute manifestations of bacteremia. The majority of cases are seen in already hospitalized patients, most of whom have underlying diseases or procedures which render their bloodstreams susceptible to invasion.
