A case of lung abscess caused by Burkholderia cepacia in healthy child
Jung Hwa Lee, So Hee Lee, Seong Jin Hong, Young Chil Choi, Eun Gu Hwang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(1):89-94.   Published online January 15, 2007
Burkholderia cepacia is a Gram-negative aerobic bacillus known to cause opportunistic infections in the immune-compromised hosts. This microorganism is strongly virulent and causes a necrotising invasive infection that may lead to death. As B. cepacia is highly resistant to various antimicrobials, combination antimicrobial therapy must be used instead of monotherapy. We report a successful treatment of lung abscess that was...
