Abstract

Acinetobacter lwoffii is gram-negative coccobacillus which is seen as a normal flora of the oropharynx and skin of the healthy individuals. It is a potential opportunistic pathogen in patients with impaired immune systems, and can cause of nosocomial infections like septicemia. A. lwoffii infection is increasing particularly in premature and very low-birth weight neonates. Here, we present a case of a low birth weight neonate with A.lwoffii infection who was successfully treated.

Abstract

Acinetobacter lwoffii sağlıklı bireylerin cilt ve orofarenksinde flora üyesi olarak saptanabilen bir gram-negatif kokobasildir. İmmün baskılanmış kişilerde fırsatçı patojen olarak septisemi gibi sağlık bakımı ilişkili enfeksiyonlara sebep olabilir. Prematüre ve düşük doğum ağırlıklı bebeklerde A. lwoffii enfeksiyon sıklığı artmaktadır. Bu vaka sunumunda, düşük doğum ağırlıklı bir bebekte başarı ile tedavi edilmiş A. lwoffii enfeksiyonunu sunmak istiyoruz.
