Article
The emergence of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) is a critical concern worldwide. In Italy, CPE isolates are very frequent with the KPC types strongly predominant whereas the New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase (NDM) enzymes are extremely rare. In this study, we report the first detection of NDM-5-producing Escherichia coli sequence type...
Article
Kodamaea ohmeri, also known as Pichia ohmeri, is a yeast belonging to the Saccharomycetes family. In 2012, our hospital has recorded the first case of fungemia caused by K. ohmeri in an 80-year-old male, admitted to intensive care following an acute anterior-lateral myocardial infarction. K. ohmeri grew in blood cultures. Biochemical identification...

Anaerobic bacteria are part of the commensal bacterial flora of skin and mucosae. Iatrogenic and pathological conditions altering this commensal relationship cause life-threatening diseases.STUDY DESIGNWe analyzed the blood cultures sent to the microbiology of our hospital between 2008 and the first quarter of 2013 to measure the frequency of bacte...

Blood cultures have the drawback of requiring long time to be carried out. Our study was designed with the aim of early reports on both causing agents and preliminary antimicrobial susceptibility. We carried out a direct antimicrobial susceptibility on 79 positive blood cultures (42 for Gram-negative bacteria of which 21 MDRO; 22 for staphylococci...

Nosocomial infections, arising from complications during hospital treatment, represent one of the most important cause of disease. The Andria hospital has initiated a prevalence study, as a part of a general program promoted by the “Agenzia Regionale per la Sanità” (Regional Health Board) of Regione Puglia. Samples were collected from patients hosp...

Enteritis occur primarily in children and elderly. In order to analyse the frequency of single specific causative agents of enteritis, 5072 stool cultures have been evaluated at the Andria Hospital laboratory from 2000 to 2009. Cultures for Salmonella, Shigella, Campylobacter were performed, and, on samples from children under 6 years old, testing...

Campylobacter fetus is a mobile, curved or spiral-shaped Gram negative bacillus.We report a case of bacteraemia due to C. fetus subsp. fetus isolated from a 47-year-old male patient liver transplanted, with underlying cardiovascular disease and receiving immunosuppressive therapy with cyclosporine.This patient was admitted to the hospital with feve...

Endotoxin (LPS), present in the outer membrane of Gram negative bacteria, is responsible for a series of biological effects, primarily linked to the lipid fraction (Lipid A).The aim of our work was to correlate the endotoxin activity with the risk of severe sepsis in patients showing severe bacterial infection and hospitalized in the three Intensiv...

Ureaplasma spp. and Mycoplasma hominis are frequently isolated from urogenital samples. Ureaplasma spp is responsible for cervicovaginitis, salpingitis, urethritis, epididymitis, male and female infertility, spontaneous abortion, and during pregnancy, for the premature rupture of the membranes, because of chorionamnionitis. Our study aimed to estab...
Article
We report a patient with clinically significant vaginal posthysterectomy infection due to Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron. The microorganism isolated from the vaginal cuff abscess was beta-lactamase producer and the antibiotic susceptibility pattern showed its resistance to piperacillin-tazobactam and cefoxitin, while the susceptibility to amoxicillin...
