Community-Acquired, Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamase-Producing and Extensively Drug-Resistant in a 28-Year-Old Pyelonephritis Patient Lacking Risk Factors.

Antibiotics (Basel) 2021 May 5;10(5). Epub 2021 May 5.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville, Greenville, SC 29605, USA.

While is a common cause of urinary tract infections and pyelonephritis, there are few documented cases of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) isolates from the community resulting in infection requiring hospitalization, especially in individuals lacking risk factors. In the United States, exposure to ESBL-producing is typically nosocomial, whereas patients from developing countries often encounter ESBL-producing in the community through the consumption of contaminated food or water. Considering the rarity at which XDR isolates are encountered, there is also a scarcity of literature describing the successful treatment of ESBL-producing XDR Here we present a case of an otherwise healthy 28-year-old female delicatessen worker infected with ESBL-producing and XDR without recent travel, antibiotic use, or healthcare contact, who required admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) with pyelonephritis and septic shock.

Assessment of Significant Bacteriuria, Bacterial Profile and Pyuria among Pregnant Women with Urinary Tract Symptoms in Enugu, South-Eastern Nigeria: A Cross-Sectional Study.

West Afr J Med 2021 May;38(5):428-433

Institute of Maternal and Child Health, College of Medicine, University of Nigeria Ituku-Ozalla Campus, Enugu, Nigeria.

Background: Urinary tract symptoms are common in pregnancy; thus, symptom-based diagnosis of urinary tract infection (UTI) might not be accurate. Such women are often exposed to antibiotics without urine culture and antibiotics sensitivity. Identification of pyuria on urine microscopy of pregnant women with urinary tract symptoms may predict significant bacteriuria and guide such women's treatment in under-resourced settings. Read More
