Bacteremia caused by Eggerthella lenta in an elderly man with a gastrointestinal malignancy: A case report



Bacteremia caused by Eggerthella lenta in an elderly man with a gastrointestinal malignancy: A case report



Canadian Journal of Infectious Diseases and Medical Microbiology 25(5): E85-E86



L’Eggerthella lenta est un bacille anaérobique à Gram positif présent dans le tube digestif humain. Il cause parfois des infections au potentiel mortel. La bactériémie attribuable à cet organisme est toujours grave sur le plan clinique et s’associe à des maladies gastro-intestinales et à des états immunosuppressifs. Les auteurs présentent le cas d’un homme âgé atteint d’un cancer gastro-intestinal diagnostiqué qui a souffert d’une bactériémie causée par l’E lenta et qui a reçu un traitement empirique fructueux à la vancomycine et à la pipéracilline-tazobactam, suivi d’une thérapie dirigée au métronidazole une fois l’organisme connu et la susceptibilité à l’organisme établie. Ce cas renforce le lien entre la bactériémie causée par l’E lenta et le cancer gastro-intestinal et fait ressortir l’importance d’en chercher la source.
