SEGADO-ARENAS, Antonio; ALONSO-OJEMBARRENA, Almudena; LUBIAN-LOPEZ, Simón P. y GARCIA-TAPIA, Ana M.. Pantoea agglomerans. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2012, vol.110, n.4, pp. e77-e79. ISSN 0325-0075.
Late-onset sepsis is very frequent among preterm infants and cases due to Gram negative pathogens have elevated morbidity and mortality. Pantoea agglomerans is a Gram negative organism which has been rarely reported causing disease in humans. We present a case of P. agglomerans late-onset fulminant sepsis in a preterm newborn at a neonatal intensive care unit. Up to date none P. agglomerans sepsis has been reported among this population in our country.
