Aortic endograft infection with Mycobacterium chimaera and Granulicatella adiacens, Switzerland, 2014. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 24(9):1700-1704.

Abstract

We describe an aortic endograft infection caused by Mycobacterium chimaera and Granulicatella adiacens, successfully treated with prolonged antimicrobial drug therapy after complete explantation of the infected endoprosthesis and extra-anatomical reconstruction. Whole-genome sequencing analysis did not indicate a close relationship to bacterial strains known to cause infections after cardiac surgery.
