Abstrakt

The case presented here illustrates a sometimes complex disease presentation where interdisciplinary teamwork is essential. A 74-years-old woman with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary lung disease and a composite graft aortic valve implant was admitted to hospital with an episode of acute lower back pain combined with long-term fever. The final diagnoses of a left-sided, infected and radiologically evident kidney cyst caused by the urinary tract pathogens Actinotignum schaalii and Aerococcus urinae was established by the use of partial 16S/18S rRNA gene sequence analysis on kidney cyst drainage material taken after four weeks of relevant antibiotic therapy.
