Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 51-year-old woman was admitted to the emergency unit with diffuse headache, visus reduction, and paraesthesias of the trigeminal area and the left hand. Three days after admission she showed shaking chills, vomiting, and sudden onset of fever (39·4°C). Blood cultures were performed soon after fever onset. Fever persisted for the whole day, decreasing slowly after 12 hours. No empirical antibiotic treatment was started in order to better define the diagnosis. Fever completely disappeared the day after. Two blood cultures for aerobes were positive for Chryseobacterium indologenes. The patient was discharged with the diagnosis of transient bacteraemia and transferred to the neurology unit for further investigations. C. indologenes infections are described in 31 studies with a total of 171 cases (pneumonia and bacteraemia being the most frequent). Our case is the first report of transient bacteraemia caused by C. indologenes in an immunocompetent, non-elderly patient without needing medical devices.
