Stenotrophomonas maltophilia

an opportunistic ocular bacterial pathogen producing keratitis, keratopathy, and conjunctivitis; a gram-negative nonsporebearing rod, a major emerging nosocomial pathogen, it is of especial importance in intensive care units in part because of its resistance to most penicillins and also to cephalosporins and aminoglycosides. Formerly called Xanthomonas maltophilia and Pseudomonas maltophilia.

STENOTROPHOMONAS INFECTION OF THE LEG
A gram-negative, motile, strictly anaerobic bacillus of the family Pseudomonadaceae. It may cause pneumonia, meningitis, endocarditis, conjunctivitis, wound infections, and infections related to the use of central venous catheters. Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole is used to treat infections with this organism. This species was formerly called Pseudomonas maltophila and Xanthomonas maltophila. See: illustration

Because of low resistance levels (~5%), trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX) has remained the choice of antimicrobial therapy against S.
More pronounced effect was observed for disease index as S.
Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMPSMX) is recommended as the agent of choice for treatment of S.
In the second stage, they retrospectively followed almost 700 CF patients for 12 years to determine whether chronic infection with S.

Combinations of MD:G and MD:GA were good materials, especially in 1:1 proportions, to encapsulate S.
However, comparatively little is known of the epidemiology of this bacterium, and sources and routes of transmission of S.
