Veillonella

Veillonella (organism)


Presentation

  • We herein present a case of epidural abscess caused by V. parvula in a 68-year-old man with sinus squamous cell carcinoma who presented with a 3-week history of low back pain. Blood and pus cultures were positive for Veillonella spp.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
High Fever
  • Swelling of the eyelid, high fever and vomiting developed in spite of oral antibiotics for seven days. The findings of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were white blood cells (WBC) 26,368/mm3 (90% polymorphs), protein 127 mg/dl, and sugar 0 mg/dl.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • He presented with high fevers and neutropenia. The patient had no indwelling catheters. Physical examination was negative, except for evidence of gingivitis. Veillonella was isolated from patient's blood cultures.[jim.bmj.com]
Intravenous Administration
  • Surgical debridement was performed following which the patient received intravenous administration of amoxicillin/clavulanate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hemoptysis
  • A 44-year-old man was referred for evaluation of a progressive pulmonary disease of 7-month duration characterized by hemoptysis and fever.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Vomiting
  • Swelling of the eyelid, high fever and vomiting developed in spite of oral antibiotics for seven days. The findings of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were white blood cells (WBC) 26,368/mm3 (90% polymorphs), protein 127 mg/dl, and sugar 0 mg/dl.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • At admission they were acutely ill with symptoms like high-grade fever, headache and vomiting.[antimicrobe.org]

Heart Disease
  • A 60-year-old man with a history of a benign heart murmur for 25 years had evaluation of six months of unexplained fever and heart disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Case presentation A 49-year-old Saudi man, a known case of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), hypertension and ischemic heart disease, presented to the emergency department with a three-day history of fever, chills and ankle pain after trauma[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]
Heart Murmur
  • A 60-year-old man with a history of a benign heart murmur for 25 years had evaluation of six months of unexplained fever and heart disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Formication
  • No decisive role could be found for acetic, formic, and propionic acid. No inhibition of demineralization was observed in the enamel slabs inoculated with both aerobic and anaerobic mixed plaques.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • If an identification score was below a 1.7 cutoff, the isolate was again spotted on a MALDI plate and pretreated with 1 μL of 70% formic acid before being overlaid with the matrix solution.[doi.org]
  • Resulting peptides were extracted, dried in the Speed-Vac and then resuspended in water/acetronitrile/formic acid (98:2:0.1).[journal.frontiersin.org]
Flushing
  • The PBS–cysteine solution was flushed with N 2 to enhance survival of anaerobic bacteria such as Veillonella.[doi.org]
Back Pain
  • Veillonella VO may occur in immunocompetent patients and have a clinical spectrum of mechanical lower back pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 27-year-old man was admitted to the hospital after a 3-week history of low back pain. The onset of pain was abrupt with no identifiable precipitating factor. Spinal motion was limited in all planes and a CT-scan revealed a disk herniation.[antimicrobe.org]
Fracture
  • He was admitted to the hospital due to an open fracture to the left radial bone caused by industrial washing machine accident, and emergency surgery was performed. However, wound infections occurred one week after the operation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A left foot X-ray revealed soft tissue swelling, gas formation and fracture of the calcaneus bone.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]
  • The subjects who had a history of immunosuppression or systemic diseases (e.g. leukemia, hepatitis), or any conditions requiring antibiotic monitoring or treatment procedures (e.g. heart conditions, bone fractures), or those with mucosal lesions, previous[f1000research.com]
Low Back Pain
  • We herein present a case of epidural abscess caused by V. parvula in a 68-year-old man with sinus squamous cell carcinoma who presented with a 3-week history of low back pain. Blood and pus cultures were positive for Veillonella spp.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 27-year-old man was admitted to the hospital after a 3-week history of low back pain. The onset of pain was abrupt with no identifiable precipitating factor. Spinal motion was limited in all planes and a CT-scan revealed a disk herniation.[antimicrobe.org]
Paresis
  • His clinical course was complicated by cortical blindness and limb paresis as a result of cerebral embolism. The endocarditis was successfully treated with urgent valve replacement surgery and a prolonged course of metronidazole.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Renal Insufficiency
  • We present a case of bilateral abscessed orchiepididymitis associated with septicemia due to Veillonella parvula and, later, to Clostridium perfringens, with the development of severe renal insufficiency and septic shock, which resolved favorably with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Actinomyces Israelii
  • These tongue isolates were unable to coaggregate with most normal members of the subgingival flora such as Actinomyces viscosus, Actinomyces naeslundii, Actinomyces israelii, and Streptococcus sanguis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Initial treatment with ciprofloxacin was associated with treatment failure and poor response. Identification of the organism was essential for the selection of appropriate treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • The aim of this case report is to emphasize that brain biopsy should be considered in patients with encephalitis of unknown etiology. Authors User assignment Assign yourself or invite other person as author.[infona.pl]
  • Rarely, Veillonella species have been the only etiologic agents identified in serious infections such as meningitis, osteomyelitis, prosthetic joint infection, pleuropulmonary infection, endocarditis, and bacteremia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
