A catheter-related bloodstream infection caused by Chryseobacterium indologenes successfully treated with antibiotic-lock rescue therapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report the case of a catheter-related bloodstream infection caused by Chryseobacterium indologenes, an uncommon and multi-resistant pathogen, in a pediatric patient with a long-term vascular access device placed for chemotherapy treatment. The infection was successfully treated with ciprofloxacin antibiotic- lock therapy. This is the first report on successful salvage of a long-term device colonized by multi-resistant Chryseobacterium indologenes.
