  • Achromobacter Xylosoxidans subsp Xylosoxidans prosthetic aortic valve infective endocarditis and aortic root abscesses
    Journal of Medical Microbiology, 2008
    Co-Authors: Damien Stark, Deborah Marriott, J Harkness

    Abstract:

    We report a case of prosthetic valve infective endocarditis and aortic root abscesses caused by Achromobacter Xylosoxidans subsp. Xylosoxidans. The patient was an intravenous drug user and had injected amphetamines using ‘duck pond water’ as a diluent. After surgical intervention and 6 weeks of intravenous meropenem therapy, the patient made an uneventful recovery.

  • Phage therapy against Achromobacter Xylosoxidans lung infection in a patient with cystic fibrosis: a case report
    Research in Microbiology, 2018
    Co-Authors: North Hoyle, P. Zhvaniya, Nana Balarjishvili, D. Bolkvadze, L. Nadareishvili, D. Nizharadze, Joseph Wittmann, Christine Rohde, Mzia Kutateladze

    Abstract:

    Respiratory infections can lead to serious complications in CF patients, especially when infected with antibiotic resistant bacteria. Alternative treatments for these infections are being sought out to help address this problem. We present a clinical case of a cystic fibrosis (CF) patient, with multi-drug resistant (MDR) Achromobacter Xylosoxidans chronic lung infection who was successfully managed with bacteriophage therapy.
