Title: Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteremia secondary to acute right leg cellulitis
Other Titles: case of community-acquired infection
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative bacillus that causes wide spectrum clinical infections. However, it is most frequently associated with hospital-acquired infection. In this case a 58-year-old male with underlying hypertension and dyslipidaemia was admitted for acute right leg cellulitis. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was identified from the case, though it was not a usual suspected organism. It might be due to community-acquired infection.
