Pseudomonas (organism)


Presentation

  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 1-year-old girl was presented to a hospital in the northeastern part of Ghana with a 1-week history of pustular rashes on her scalp and neck, which occasionally ruptured, along with discharge of yellowish purulent fluid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patient had a recent history of prosthetic aortic valve replacement and presented to the emergency department with fever and chills.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 57-year-old white man presented with bilateral large leg ulcers, fever, and marked leukocytosis. His past medical history included gout and chronic alcohol use. P. mendocina was isolated from his blood cultures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The latter signal was present in all Sulfolobus enzyme preparations and proved not due to either a contaminant or a precursor protein, but likely being a dimeric form of the 40 kDa polypeptide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Pseudomonas fluorescens biovar V-1 was most frequently isolated (24%); it either predominated or was present in all types of samples.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • These results suggested that Chryseomonas, Flavimonas, and Pseudomonas are synonymous, and we concluded that Chryseomonas and Flavimonas are junior subjective synonyms of Pseudomonas.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Adoption of the treatment guideline leads to a reasonable complete cure rate of Pseudomonas peritonitis. Treatment with three antibiotics is not superior than the conventional two antibiotics regimen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Despite following standard treatment, Pseudomonas keratitis can continue to progress and result in loss of vision or of the eye.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment of infections caused by these pan-drug-resistant bacteria is difficult owing to the paucity of effective antibiotics.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Nebulized colistin is also a potential treatment for this infection.[bronchiectasisnewstoday.com]
  • Treatment combinations including nebulised colistimethate sodium were more effective (n 31/54, 57%) than those with systemic antibiotics alone (n 2/10, 20%) (t-test, p 0.04).[erj.ersjournals.com]

Prognosis

  • The importance of this research is illustrated by the high numbers of infected people, the treatment burden posed and the resultant poor prognosis. So far...[cysticfibrosis.org.uk]
  • […] another study, this bacterial phenotype, known as the mucoid phenotype, is associated with considerable difficulty in eradicating the pathogen, leading to a strong inflammatory response and resulting in an accelerated loss of lung function and a poorer prognosis[cysticfibrosisnewstoday.com]
  • Pseudomonas causes a wide spectrum of diseases; therefore, prognosis is varied.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Isolates from patients with cystic fibrosis have a characteristic mucoid colonial morphology and result in a worse prognosis than nonmucoid Pseudomonas .[merckmanuals.com]
  • Isolates from patients with cystic fibrosis have a characteristic mucoid colonial morphology and result in a worse prognosis than nonmucoid Pseudomonas.[msdmanuals.com]

Etiology

  • The purpose of this study is to compare the adhesion capabilities of the most important etiologic agents of microbial ocular infection to the recently available silicone– hydrogel lenses with those to a conventional hydrogel lens. Methods.[repositorium.sdum.uminho.pt]

Epidemiology

  • ABSTRACT Ribotyping, a method of genotyping bacterial isolates for epidemiologic study, uses rRNA as a probe to detect chromosomal restriction fragment length polymorphisms.[jcm.asm.org]
  • Refining our knowledge on the ecology and epidemiology of these bacterial groups, as well as deciphering their evolutionary dynamics are keys for understanding their contrasting lifestyles and consequently improving plant disease control.[frontiersin.org]
