Ahmad Shalabi, Tristan Ehrlich, Hans-Joachim Schäfers, Sören L. Becker, Universität Des Saarlandes
Invasive infections due to Pseudomonas stutzeri have rarely been described and mainly occur in immunocompromised individuals. We report a case of infective endocarditis caused by P. stutzeri after previous cardiac surgery in a Lebanese patient with Marfan syndrome. We review the literature and conclude that this pathogen may be of particular medical relevance in the Mediterranean Basin.
