Achromobacter xylosoxidans mesh related infection: a case of delayed diagnosis and management

, : Achromobacter xylosoxidans mesh related infection: a case of delayed diagnosis and management. Journal of Infection 64(3): E1-E5

We present the first case of mesh related infection caused by Achromobacter xylosoxidans after ventral hernia repair. After repair of a small paraumbilical hernia, the postoperative course was complicated by persistent discharging sinuses despite the removal of underlying polypropylene mesh. Removal of an intrabdominal omental inflammatory mass containing pus that showed growth of A. xylosoxidans led to the resolution of all the symptoms.

Candida albicans is a major opportunistic fungal pathogen of immunocompromised hosts. alpha-Aminoadipate pathway for lysine biosynthesis is unique for fungi. The genes and enzymes of this novel pathway could serve as molecular targets for rapid di...

There is considerable evidence to implicate T cells in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). They initiate and sustain inflammation and therefore are attractive targets for immunotherapy. Several strategies targeting T cells have been tri...
