Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

Description of two cases of community-acquired Acinetobacter baumannii pneumonia.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

Two patients, one with a history of diabetes mellitus type 2 and pulmonary thromboembolism 2 years earlier and the second without known risk factors except for the age, were admitted to hospital because of community-acquired A. baumannii pneumonia with cavitation and with favorable final evolution.

CONCLUSION:

A. baumannii is an infrequent cause of community-acquired pneumonia, although it should be suspected in patients with debilitating illness and in patients who do not evolve favorably on the first days of the admission with conventional treatment.
