Infection with Helicobacter cinaedi can encompass a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations, including fever, rash, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, and meningitis. The present case demonstrates the ability of H cinaedi to masquerade as acute rheumatic fever and represents the first reported case of cardiac tamponade caused by H cinaedi.

A 65-year-old man presented with gradually exacerbating low back pain. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed vertebral osteomyelitis in the Th11-L2 vertebral bodies and discs. The patient showed negative findings on conventional cultures. Direct broad-range polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with sequencing of the biopsied specimen had the highest similarity to the 16S rRNA gene of Helicobacter cinaedi. This case suggests that direct broad-range PCR with sequencing should be considered when conventional cultures cannot identify the causative organism of vertebral osteomyelitis, and that this method may be particularly useful when the pathogen is a fastidious organism, such as H...

Here we report the outbreak of bacteremia caused by Helicobacter cinaedi (H. cinaedi) in the urology ward. Case 1 was a man in his seventies with prostate cancer. Bacteremia caused by H. cinaedi developed 6 days after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy. Case 2 was a man in his sixties with small cell carcinoma of the prostate. Bacteremia developed at 5 days of docetaxel therapy. Case 3 was a man in his fifties with left renal pelvis carcinoma. Bacteremia developed 3 days after laparoscopic left nephroureterectomy...

BACKGROUND: The route of Helicobacter cinaedi bacteremia has not yet been clarified. Although bacterial translocation from the intestinal tract into the circulation has been suggested, it has not been demonstrated thus far. The objective of this study was to investigate the port of entry of this bacterium. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study on patients with H. cinaedi bacteremia between March 2009 and May 2013. Records of patients in whom H...

β-Lactams are often used to treat Helicobacter cinaedi infections; however, the mechanism underlying β-lactam resistance is unknown. In this study, we investigated β-lactam resistance in a H. cinaedi strain, MRY12-0051 (MIC of AMX and CRO: 32 and 128 μg/ml; obtained from human feces). Based on a comparative whole genome analysis of MRY12-0051 and the CRO-susceptible H. cinaedi strain MRY08-1234 (MIC of AMX and CRO: 1 and 4 μg/ml; obtained from human blood), we identified five mutations in genes encoding penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs), including two in pbpA, one in pbp2, and two in ftsI Transformation and penicillin-binding assays indicated that CRO resistance was mainly associated with mutations in pbpA; mutations in ftsI also led to increased resistance to AMX...

BACKGROUND: Non-Helicobacter pylori helicobacters (NHPHs) besides H. pylori infect human stomachs and cause chronic gastritis and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. Cholesteryl-α-glucosides have been identified as unique glycolipids present in H. pylori and some Helicobacter species. Cholesterol-α-glucosyltransferase (αCgT), a key enzyme for the biosynthesis of cholesteryl-α-glucosides, plays crucial roles in the pathogenicity of H. pylori. Therefore, it is important to examine αCgTs of NHPHs...

The causative organism is not identified in some cases of infected aneurysms, a life-threatening condition. A 68-year-old man presented with chest/back pain and a 1-year history of intermittent fever and fatigue. Computed tomography revealed a thoracic aortic aneurysm. After several negative blood cultures, he was eventually diagnosed with an infected aneurysm caused by Helicobacter cinaedi via gene analysis of an aortic tissue specimen. As H. cinaedi is a low-virulence bacterium, infection with this pathogen should be suspected in cases of aortic aneurysms with unidentified causative organism and a long history of subjective symptoms...

Helicobacter cinaedi is associated with nosocomial infections. The CRISPR-Cas system provides adaptive immunity against foreign genetic elements. We investigated the CRISPR-Cas system in H. cinaedi to assess the potential of the CRISPR-based microevolution of H. cinaedi strains. A genotyping method based on CRISPR spacer organization was carried out using 42 H. cinaedi strains. The results of sequence analysis showed that the H. cinaedi strains used in this study had two CRISPR loci (CRISPR1 and CRISPR2). The lengths of the consensus direct repeat sequences in CRISPR1 and CRISPR2 were both 36 bp-long, and 224 spacers were found in the 42 H...

The current article is a review of the most important and relevant literature published in 2016 and early 2017 on non-Helicobacter pylori Helicobacter infections in humans and animals, as well as interactions between H. pylori and the microbiota of the stomach and other organs. Some putative new Helicobacter species were identified in sea otters, wild boars, dogs, and mice. Many cases of Helicobacter fennelliae and Helicobacter cinaedi infection have been reported in humans, mostly in immunocompromised patients...

A 63-year-old man with follicular lymphoma was administered standard R-CHOP chemotherapy. Six days after the second course of chemotherapy, the patient developed fever and chills. Blood cultures yielded rod-shaped gram-negative bacteria, but no further identification was obtained. High fever and chills returned on the fifth and sixth days after the third and fourth courses of R-CHOP, respectively. These blood cultures were also positive. Since we detected spiral-shaped gram-negative rods, we performed a prolonged culture during the febrile period after the fourth course of R-CHOP...

Cyst infection is one of the major complications in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). The causative pathogen in kidney cyst infection frequently goes undetected. Although only one case report of kidney cyst infection caused by Helicobacter cinaedi (H. cinaedi) is published in English literature, it may be an important pathogen in kidney cyst infection. Kidney cyst infection and H. cinaedi infection share the common characteristic of tendency to relapse and chronic kidney disease is a major risk factor for H...

A 40-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) presented with high-grade fever and severe thrombocytopenia. Acalculous cholecystitis and thrombocytopenia were initially suspected to be complicated with SLE and vasculitis. Contrary to our expectation, however, the patient was finally diagnosed with Helicobacter cinaedi bacteremia. SLE patients show various symptoms, especially when their condition is complicated with vasculitis, which mimics H. cinaedi bacteremia. It is therefore difficult to provide a definite diagnosis...

Although Helicobacter cinaedi was initially considered an opportunistic pathogen in immunocompromised patients, it was later shown to also infect immunocompetent and healthy individuals. Sporadic bacteremia due to H. cinaedi has frequently been reported; however, whether the bacterium can be translocated after passage through the intestinal mucosa remains unclear. In the present study, a preclinical small animal model that faithfully reproduces H. cinaedi infection in humans was developed. Balb/c male mice were orally inoculated with a single dose of 6...

BACKGROUND: Helicobacter cinaedi causes bacteremia and cellulitis, mainly in immunocompromised patients. We report a rare case of H. cinaedi bacteremia with cellulitis in a living-donor kidney transplant recipient identified by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS). A 54-year-old Asian man with IgA nephropathy underwent living-donor kidney transplantation 14 years previously. He was admitted to our hospital for evaluation of fever and multifocal cellulitis...

Recent studies have shown that certain specific microbial infections participate in atherosclerosis by inducing inflammation and immune reactions, but how the pathogens implicated in this pathology trigger the host responses remains unknown. In this study we show that Helicobacter cinaedi (Hc) is a human pathogen linked to atherosclerosis development since at least 27% of sera from atherosclerotic patients specifically recognize a protein of the Hc proteome, that we named Cinaedi Atherosclerosis Inflammatory Protein (CAIP) (n = 71)...

BACKGROUND: There have been various reports concerning Helicobacter cinaedi infections. However, few reports have examined central nervous system infections. CASE PRESENTATION: A 52-year-old man was transferred from the local hospital because of a persistent headache and suspected intracranial subdural empyema. Neurosurgical drainage was performed via burr holes. Gram staining and results from abscess cultures were negative. The blood culture yielded H. cinaedi...
