Executive summary of the consensus document of the Spanish Society of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology (SEIMC), the Spanish Network for Research in Infectious Diseases (REIPI) and the Spanish Society of Haematology and Haemotherapy (SEHH) on the management of febrile neutropenia in patients with hematological malignancies.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2019 Mar 26. Epub 2019 Mar 26.

Servicio de Onco-hematología, Hospital de la Princesa, Madrid, Spain.

Febrile neutropenia is a very common complication in patients with hematological malignancies receiving chemotherapy, and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria have become a therapeutic challenge in this high-risk patient population, since inadequate initial empirical treatment can seriously compromise prognosis. However, reducing antimicrobial exposure is one of the most significant cornerstones in the fight against resistance. Read More

Recommendations of the Spanish Antibiogram Committee (COESANT) for selecting antimicrobial agents and concentrations for in vitro susceptibility studies using automated systems.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Red Española de Investigación en Patología Infecciosa (REIPI), Instituto de Salud Carlos III, Madrid, Spain; Unidad de Gestión Clínica de Microbiología, Hospital Reina Sofía, Departamento de Microbiología, Universidad de Córdoba, Instituto Maimónides de Investigación Biomédica de Córdoba (IMIBIC), Córdoba, Spain.

Automated antimicrobial susceptibility testing devices are widely implemented in clinical microbiology laboratories in Spain, mainly using EUCAST (European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing) breakpoints. In 2007, a group of experts published recommendations for including antimicrobial agents and selecting concentrations in these systems. Under the patronage of the Spanish Antibiogram Committee (Comité Español del Antibiograma, COESANT) and the Study Group on Mechanisms of Action and Resistance to Antimicrobial Agents (GEMARA) from the Spanish Society of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology (SEIMC), and aligned with the Spanish National Plan against Antimicrobial Resistance (PRAN), a group of experts have updated this document.

Infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis (including lymphogranuloma venereum) and Mycoplasma genitalium.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Unidad de ITS Vall d'Hebron-Drassanes, Servicio de Enfermedades Infecciosas, Hospital Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, España.

Sexually transmitted infections caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, including lymphogranuloma venereum and Mycoplasma genitalium have increased in last decade. This epidemiological scenario presents new challenges in order to improve and strengthen our control and prevention strategies. The routine clinical diagnosis of urethritis and cervicitis must be combined with the active search for the causal agent in men with symptoms of dysuria or proctitis, and in women with pelvic inflammatory disease.

Servicio de Microbiología, Hospital Universitario Puerta del Mar, Cádiz, España. Electronic address:

The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a double-stranded DNA virus, with more than 200 different genotypes having been identified. This infection is considered the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI), and it is the cause of a significant number of diseases, both benign lesions (anogenital condylomas) and pre-malignant lesions and different cancers. The diagnosis of the infection is performed by molecular techniques based on the detection of viral DNA, the mRNA of oncogenic proteins and cellular alteration caused by the infection. Read More

Servicio de Pediatría, Hospital Universitario Basurto, Bilbao, Bizkaia, España.

Sexual violence is a worldwide problem with an impact on health that encompasses medical, legal and psychological aspects. Therefore the management of these patients must be multidisciplinary, and action protocols are compulsory. People who are victims of a sexual assault (SA) are at high risk of acquiring a sexually transmitted infection (STI), which must be prevented, diagnosed, treated and followed up post treatment, according to the established action protocol to prevent potential complications.

Diagnostic delay as main contributing factor to a large outbreak of tuberculosis in a university.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2018 Dec 28. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Unidad de Vigilancia Epidemiológica, Delegación Territorial de Salud de Bizkaia, Bilbao, España.

Objective: To describe the epidemiological characteristics of a large tuberculosis outbreak in the university environment and the main risk factors associated with it.

Method: A descriptive analysis of the data collected from sick individuals and their contacts was made. For the contact tracing, the guidelines established in the Tuberculosis Programme of the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country were followed. Read More

Vaginosis. Vaginal microbiota.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2018 Dec 26. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

Departamento de Biología Funcional, Universidad de Oviedo, Oviedo, España; Fundación de Investigación Oftalmológica, Instituto Oftalmológico Fernández-Vega, Oviedo, España; Fundación para la Investigación y la Innovación Biosanitaria del Principado de Asturias (FINBA), Oviedo, España.

The latest advances in the vaginal microbiome and molecular diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis have allowed for a better knowledge of this entity, characterising aspects of its pathogenesis and the establishment of the vaginal biolayer, the models and new theories of its aetiology, how it is transmitted, with it being considered nowadays as a probable sexually transmitted infection, the separation of other entities such as aerobic vaginosis, its molecular diagnosis and treatment with new molecules to prevent frequent relapses. This entity and the study of the vaginal microbiome have made it possible to consider these infections as a polymicrobial syndrome, putting an end to the dogma: one microorganism, one disease. In addition, a lesser-known entity such as aerobic vaginosis and the methods for its detection are updated. Read More

Prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted infections in high-risk individuals, including patients with HIV infection.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2019 02 24;37(2):117-126. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Servicio de Microbiología-Laboratorios Clínicos, Hospital Universitario Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, España. Electronic address:

Sexually transmitted infections are a global public health problem both due to their high prevalence and due to their morbidity. A rapid and precise diagnosis is key to establishing appropriate targeted treatment and also to decreasing dissemination of these diseases among the high-risk population. To perform adequate testing for sexually transmitted infections, many of which are asymptomatic, it is necessary to carry out the diagnostic testing according to the clinical and behavioural indicators.

Epidemiological surveillance and wild-type MIC distribution of Legionella pneumophila in north-western Spain. 2003-2016.

Enferm Infecc Microbiol Clin 2018 Dec 24. Epub 2018 Dec 24.

Service of Microbiology and Immunology, Hospital Clínico Universitario, Valladolid, Spain; Area of Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Valladolid, Valladolid, Spain.

Purpose: To perform epidemiological surveillance of Legionella pneumophila in recreational swimming pools in the city of Valladolid (Spain), an area with a continental climate and low incidence of legionella-associated infections. Additionally, wild-type minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) distributions for eight antibiotics commonly used for the treatment of legionellosis were calculated from the isolates obtained.

Methods: Twelve recreational pools were enrolled between June 2003 and December 2016 and 7221 water samples were taken from three different points of the water network (tank, tap and shower). Read More
