1/2. aeromonas hydrophila bacteremia presenting as non-traumatic acute osteomyelitis in a cirrhotic patient.

    aeromonas hydrophila is a low-virulence gram-negative bacillus. It has never been reported as a pathogen of non-traumatic acute osteomyelitis in a cirrhotic patient. Herein, we reported on a case of decompensated liver cirrhosis with aeromonas hydrophila infection presenting as acute gastroenteritis and non-traumatic acute osteomyelitis. It has been shown that Aeromonas bacteremia usually affects immunocompromised subjects, such as those with liver cirrhosis. Non-traumatic acute osteomyelitis should be highly suggested when a cirrhotic patient with Aeromonas bacteremia presents with severe low back pain and no associated trauma.

2/2. Successive Salmonella give and salmonella typhi infections, laboratory-acquired.

    A case of laboratory-acquired typhoid fever is described. The case was complicated by a self-limiting Salmonella give gastroenteritis which may also have been laboratory-acquired and which occurred during the incubation period of the salmonella typhi infection. The symptoms of typhoid were not sufficiently severe for the patient to seek medical attention and she was recovering from the infection when the typhoid bacillus was isolated from her stools. The mode of transmission of the S. typhi was presumed to be a laboratory infection from an unknown source. Although there was no obvious breakdown in safe laboratory techniques, the infecting dose of S. typhi is known to be small and the dangers of handling specimens which may contain this bacterium are emphasized.
