Abstract:

Members of the genus Myroides namely, M. odoratus and M. odoratimimus are ubiquitous in nature. Over past decade, these Gram negative bacteria are increasingly being implicated in various life threatening infections in health care setting. Here we report a case of urosepsis due to multi-drug resistant M. odoratimimus in a 41 year old male with anaplastic astrocytoma. The case highlights the importance of surveillance of multidrug resistant organisms in intensive care units of hospital.


Keywords: Myroides, Multi drug resistance, Septicaemia, Urinary tract infection.
