Abstract:

In this multicenter, matched case-control study, patients diagnosed with catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) caused by Bacillus cereus (n = 108) were matched to controls (n = 269). In the multivariable analysis, administration of an amino acid preparation and an indwelling peripheral catheter were significant variables for B cereus-related CRBSI.
