Detection of Legionella bozemanae, a New Cause of Septic Arthritis, by PCR Followed by Specific Culture

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

Legionella bozemanae is a rare isolate in clinical specimens. We describe a case of joint infection due to L. bozemanae in an immunocompromised patient with dermatomyositis. Without the use of PCR screening or culture on specialized medium, the organism would not have been detected.
