Molecular identification of Exiguobacterium acetylicum as the aetiological agent of bacteraemia

Molecular identification of Exiguobacterium acetylicum as the aetiological agent of bacteraemia

Journal of Medical Microbiology 56(Pt 4): 563-564

A case of catheter-related bacteraemia caused by Exiguobacterium acetylicum is reported in an elderly patient. The availability of sequence-based methods facilitated rapid identification and expanded the spectrum of diseases attributed to coryneform bacteria and specifically to the genus Exiguobacterium.
