Abstract

Objectives:To report urinary tract infection caused by Brevundimonas diminuta and antibiotic susceptibility pattern of this gram negative bacillus.Patient and methods: Urine from an infant suffering from fever and vomiting suspected of urinary tract infection was analyzed .His blood was also collected for cell count. Isolation and identification of the organism was done from urine sample, followed by antibiotic susceptibility testing of the organism isolated. Results: Brevundimonas diminuta was isolated from urine specimen. Strain was sensitive to amikacin, imipenem,ticarcillin/clavunalic acid but resistant to ampicillin and ciprofloxacin. Conclusion: B.diminuta is a rare pathogen and can cause urinary tract infection. The organism is resistant to quinolones and this should be opted out for treatment.
