Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Serratia odorifera biovar 1 has been infrequently isolated from humans, and infection caused by this organism rarely has been documented. We report what is, to our knowledge, the first case of nosocomial sepsis due to S. odorifera biovar 1 and review the literature for which English-language abstracts were available on this organism. We also discuss the biochemical characteristics and the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of this organism.
