Legionella Bozemanae, a New Cause of Septic Arthritis diagnosed by 16S PCR followed by specific culture

Publikation: Konferencebidrag uden forlag/tidsskriftPosterForskning

Resumé

This is the first report ever to demonstrate that L. Bozemanae can colonize synovial joints leading to infectious arthritis.
L. Bozemanae is a rare Legionella species, earlier described as a cause of cavitating lung infections with up to 40% mortality (2).
L. Bozemanae is missed by standard cultures, however, the case was diagnosed by combining 16S PCR and sequencing followed by culture under specific conditions, a method which may help in the diagnosis of septic arthritis caused by unusual pathogens not detected by standard culture.
