Serratia marcescens is a member of the family Enterobacteriaceae. It has emerged in recent years as an opportunistic pathogen of nosocomial infections. Some biotypes of Serratia marcescens produce the non-diffusible red pigment prodigiosin. Though both pigmented and non-pigmented biotypes may be pathogenic for humans, the non-pigmented biotypes are more(More)
Dear Editor, We isolated Burkholderia cepacia from blood and sputum samples of cancer patients having febrile neutropenia. B. cepacia was identifi ed using Gram-negative GN REF 21341 identifi cation card in automated VITEK® 2 Compact (C) system (Biomeriux, North Carolina/USA). Antibiotic susceptibility results were expressed as susceptible, intermediate or(More)
Cedecea lapagei is a member of the family Enterobacteriaceae and is an uncommon pathogen. There are very few reports of isolation of this organism from biological samples; mostly it is found to be a pathogen in elderly or otherwise medically compromised. We present a rare case of a patient with underlying malignancy of buccal mucosa, who developed an oral(More)
Article type: Original Article Introduction: In radiotherapy treatment planning system (TPS), basic input is the data from computed tomography (CT) scan, which takes into account the effect of inhomogeneities in dose calculations. Measurement of CT numbers may be affected by scanner-specific parameters. Therefore, it is important to verify the effect of(More)
Collapsing glomerulopathy has been classified as a variant of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. It is associated with infections, inflammations, and certain medications. While its association with human immunodeficiency virus has been well established its occurrence with hepatitis B has not been reported. We present here a case of collapsing(More)
Dear Sir, Cancer patients are at an increased risk of the blood stream infections (BSI) due to their immune‐compromised status, repeated hospitalizations, and various procedures. Staphylococci, particularly coagulase negative Staphylococci (CoNS) are noteworthy pathogens in such cases, and the emergence of multi‐drug resistance in Staphylococci is a cause(More)
