Septicemia caused by Leifsonia aquatica in a healthy patient after retinal reattachment surgery.


:Leifsonia aquatica is an aquatic bacterium that is typically found in environmental water habitats. Infections due to L. aquatica are rare and commonly catheter associated in immunocompromised patients. We report the first case of an acute septicemia caused by L. aquatica in a healthy immunocompetent host after cryopexy in the absence of a catheter.

  • Direct examination of unstained smears for the evaluation of sputum specimens.

    abstract::We compared examination of unstained and Gram-stained smears as methods of evaluating sputum quality. Of 100 slides examined, 96 (96%) were graded identically. Each discrepancy between methods was near the cutoff for specimen acceptability. We concluded that examination of unstained smears can provide an accurate, cos...
