PMID:  21881329     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An adolescent female was admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit in septic shock. She developed multisystem organ dysfunction including pancreatitis with myocardial dysfunction and hemodynamic instability unresponsive to medical management necessitating veno-arterial extracorporeal support. Streptococcus Constellata and Fusobacterium necrophorum were isolated from blood cultures. This is the first report of extra-corporeal cardiac support in fusobacterium sepsis.
