Dermacoccus nishinomiyaensis as a cause of persistent pediatric CRBSI

This case of persistent infection subsequently resolved in response to vancomycin and urokinase lock therapy that helped to maintain the catheter” Joron et al (2019).

Abstract:

The authors herein report a persistent Dermacoccus nishinomiyaensis catheter- related bacteremia in a 1-year-old boy with severe Hirschsprung’s disease. D. nishinomiyaensis isolates were identified by Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption-Ionization Time-of-Light Mass Spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS; Bruker Daltonics), confirmed by sequencing of the rrs gene encoding the 16rRNA. Enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensus sequence- Polymerase Chain Reaction (ERIC-PCR) analysis was performed , and showed a clonal strain. D. nishinomiyaensis catheter-related bacteremia has not been previously documented. This case of persistent infection subsequently resolved in response to vancomycin and urokinase lock therapy that helped to maintain the catheter.
