The blood samples were inoculated in a BACT/ALERT (bioMerieux, France) hemoculture
device in aerobic and anaerobic culture bottles.
The results obtained should also be supported by positive serological agglutination tests, other serological titers, and hemoculture
Criteria for HAP were as follows: criterion I was physical examination for chest percussion or hypophonesis and one of the following: purulent sputum (presence of >25 leukocytes and <10 epithelial cells in the visual field), positive hemoculture
, isolation of microorganisms from aspirate or bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), biopsy.
Five PCR-positive samples, that were hemoculture
negative, were purified and subjected to DNA sequencing with the corresponding primers.
We diagnosed this patient as having an infected suprarenal aortic aneurysm, due to CTA findings showing saccular aneurysm and periaortic inflammation in the visceral segment of the aorta, even though her hemoculture
The pleural fluid culture and hemoculture
of the patient yielded penicillin-susceptible pneumococci and the isolate was identified as serotype 9V.
During week 29, routine monitoring was reinitiated and the patient tested positive by PCR, hemoculture
, and serology (trypomastigote excreted-secreted antigen [TESA] immunoblot).
Other tests were prescribed if required by the patient's conditions: chest X-ray, urine culture, hemoculture
, and thick blood film to check for Plasmodium falciparum.
coli ESA 54 Hemoculture
Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 15442[TM] Reference culture Imipenem-resistant P.
Peripheral smear, C-reactive protein and hemoculture
results were examined in terms of sepsis.
Similar signs and symptoms caused by these agents result in the failure of radiological findings to differentiate the agents and difficulties in the routine practice of invasive interventions, such as hemoculture
, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL), and lung needle biopsy.
