An outbreak of Serratia marcescens infection following urodynamic studies.

Abstract

Serratia marcescens was isolated from the urine of five patients, two of whom subsequently developed septicaemia with other Gram-negative bacilli. Four of the five patients had undergone urodynamic investigation. An inadequately sterilized re-usable rectal balloon was identified as the source of infection.
