Comamonas kerstersii bacteremia in a patient with acute perforated appendicitis: A rare case report.

Abstract Comamonas species are rarely associated with human infections. Recent reports found that Comamonas kerstersii was associated with severe diseases such as abdominal infection and bacteremia. However, C. kerstersii maybe be confused with Comamonas testosteroni using the automatic bacterial identification systems currently available.

AB  - RATIONALE: Comamonas species are rarely associated with human infections. Recent 
      reports found that Comamonas kerstersii was associated with severe diseases such 
      as abdominal infection and bacteremia. However, C. kerstersii maybe be confused
      with Comamonas testosteroni using the automatic bacterial identification systems 
      currently available. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 31-year-old man who had onset of left
      upper abdominal pain developed clinical manifestations of right lower abdominal
      pain and classic migration of pain at the temperature of 39 degrees C. The
      positive strain of aerobic and anaerobic bottles of blood cultures was
      identified. DIAGNOSES: The patient was diagnosed as acute peritonitis and
      perforated appendix with abdominal abscess. INTERVENTIONS: The bacterium was
      identified by routine methods, MALDI-TOF-MS and PCR amplification of the 16S
      rRNA. The patient was treated with exploratory laparotomy, appendectomy, tube
      drainage, and prescribing antibiotic treatment. OUTCOMES: The patients were
      discharged with complete recovery. The organisms were confirmed as C. kerstersii 
      by MALDI-TOF-MS and a combination of the other results. LESSONS: Our findings
      suggest that C. kerstersii infection occurs most often in association with
      perforated appendix and bacteremia. We presume that C. kerstersii is an
      opportunistic pathogen or commensal with the digestive tract and appendix
      bacteria.
