Preiswerk, B; Ullrich, S; Speich, R; Bloemberg, G V; Hombach, M (2011). Human infection with Delftia tsuruhatensis isolated from a central venous catheter. Journal of Medical Microbiology, 60(2):246-248.

Abstract

We present the case of a patient with catheter related infection caused by Delftia tsuruhatensis, a newly described species closely related to Delftia acidovorans (formerly Comamonas acidovorans). To date D. tsuruhatensis has not been described as a pathogen. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report describing D. tsuruhatensis as the causing agent of a human infection.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
