Bordetella bronchiseptica pneumonia in a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Abstract

This case report describes two episodes of pneumonia caused by Bordetella bronchiseptica in a patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. There was discrepancy between the in vitro sensitivity testing of the organism and subsequent clinical response to several antimicrobial agents. Human infection with B bronchiseptica is almost always associated with severe underlying disease and contact with an appropriate animal reservoir.
