Resolution of concomitant Achromobacter xylosoxidans burn wound infection without adjustment of antimicrobial therapy

, : Resolution of concomitant Achromobacter xylosoxidans burn wound infection without adjustment of antimicrobial therapy. Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery 47(1): 137-140

Achromobacter xylosoxidans is part of an emerging group of Gram negative bacterial infections with potentially severe sequelae, especially in the immunocompromised population such as burn patients. While antimicrobial therapy for patients with A. xylosoxidans bacteremia has been reported, the literature is scarce with regard to treatment in patients with positive tissue cultures only. Herein, we report our institution's experience with such a case and a brief review of the current literature on this micro-organism in the setting of non-bacteremic infection.

We have tested the possibility that the electromyographic (EMG) activity present in the parasternal intercostal muscles during quiet inspiration was reflexive, rather than agonistic, in nature. Using concentric needle electrodes we measured parast...
