Neisseria meningitidis and Moraxella osloensis: dual infection in blood and peritoneal fluid.

PMID:  3149224     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The clinical course of a malnourished alcoholic in which Neisseria meningitidis was isolated from the blood and Moraxella osloensis from the peritoneal fluid is described. Following bacteriologic diagnosis, the patient was treated and responded to a course of penicillin therapy. To our knowledge, this represents the first case of peritonitis associated with M. osloensis. Clinical reports of the isolation of this organism are rare; its pathogenicity is not clearly established, and the presence of the organism may often be unrecognized.
