Possible Prosthetic Valve Endocarditis by Pandoraea pnomenusa and Specific Virulence Mechanisms


Bodendoerfer, Elias; Personnic, Nicolas; Mestres, Carlos A; Wilhelm, Markus J; Meyer, Lilly; Hasse, Barbara (2021). Possible Prosthetic Valve Endocarditis by Pandoraea pnomenusa and Specific Virulence Mechanisms. Infection and Drug Resistance, 14:1319-1324.

Abstract

Bacteremia by Pandoraea spp. has rarely been described before. We report the first case of a P. pnomenusa possible prosthetic valve endocarditis, according to the modified Duke criteria, in a 37-year old male injecting drug user suffering from recurrent endocarditis. Furthermore, we demonstrate biofilm formation by the P. pnomenusa isolates of this patient and investigate antibiotic resistance.
