INTRODUCTION: Knowledge on potentially pathogenic microbes including characteristics of their antibiotic resistance in septic patients as well as on the ward- and department-specific microbial spectrum can be considered essential for an efficient initiation of an adequate antimicrobial treatment, which turns out to become pivotal for patient outcome. Permanent changes in microbial patterns and antibiotic resistance can only be identified by a continuous investigation of various microbiological specimens...

This case report describes an epidural abscess with pseudomonas aeruginosa after the placement of two epidural catheters within one hour in a healthy 29-year old primipara. Spontaneous delivery occurred after an episiotomy about 4 hours later. Afterwards the epidural catheter was removed completely and again 5 hours later the woman was discharged from the hospital. On postpartal day 3 the patient experienced lumbar back pain, slight weakness of both legs and some difficulties to urinate. On day 14 after delivery magnetic resonance imaging revealed an epidural abscess at the height of the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae...

Nosocomial pneumonia due to Gram-negative bacteria is one of the most important infections because of its high frequency, morbidity and mortality. The objective of this study was to determine the risk factors and prognosis for nosocomial pneumonia caused by Gram-negative bacteria. A group of 50 patients with nosocomial pneumonia due to Gram-negative bacteria were studied in a prospective, consecutive manner and compared with another group of 50 patients with similar characteristics but without infection. The diagnostic criteria, acquisition, previous infections, prognosis of the underlying disease, the initial severity of the clinical situation, presence of complications, type and evolution of antibiotic treatment were adjusted according to the criteria in the literature...

Polymicrobial endocarditis (PE) is uncommon, whether in series of cases of polymicrobial bacteriemia or of endocarditis. Among the 201 cases of infective endocarditis seen between 1986 and 1995 by an infectious diseases service, 12 patients had PE (6%). Nine were males, mean age was 28 years and ten were active intravenous drug users. All of them were HIV (+) and 50% had AIDS. Eleven subjects had infection of the tricuspid valve and 58% developed septic pulmonary emboli. The most common organism encountered was Staphylococcus aureus in 8 patients followed by Streptococcus viridans and S...

Polyvalent Pseudomonas aeruginosa vaccine, prepared at the Institute of Hematology from 10 hospital strains isolated from burn wounds, was administered to 32 children with extensive and deep burns. The vaccine was well tolerated. The vaccine produced a high degree of the immunity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection. Agglutinin serum titre increased significantly. Vaccination either prevented or inhibited the infection of burn wounds with Pseudomonas aeruginosa in all immunized children. The symptoms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection usually disappeared following one or two vaccinations...

Among 78 patients with persistant bacteriemia the latter was induced by staphylococci in 59 and by gram-negative microflora in 19 patients. In 14 of 19 patients gram-negative septicemia was preceded by staphylococcic one. Gram-negative septicemia would condition in patients the development of pyemic foci not only in the wound area but also in some portions of the body and in internal organs as well. Among 19 patients with gram-negative septicemia 12 patients died, while among 59 patients with staphylococcic septicemia there were 18 deaths...
