Abstract

Two rare and unique infections of Achromobacter xylosoxidans are described. The first case is a novel presentation of acute necrotising pancreatitis leading to a pancreatic pseudocyst, which was treated successfully in an immunocompetent male. The second case describes a local wound infection of metastatic ductal carcinoma of the breast; the patient consequently succumbed from a pre-existing co-morbid condition. Vigilant and efficient microbiological workup and surveillance are needed to diagnose infections by this rare pathogen in clinical settings.
