Propionibacterium acnes has long been considered a contaminant organism. However, recently the isolation of this emerging pathogen has become a more difficult clinical challenge. Infections of the central nervous system caused by P. acnes have been strongly associated with neurosurgical procedures. We describe a patient with Propionibacterium acnes cerebral abscess developed as consequence of a severe chronic sinus disease. 
Pathogenesis, clinical course and neuro-radiological signs of Proprionibacterium acnes cerebritis: Case report and literature review
TLDR
A rare case of P. acnes cerebritis that occurred as a sequela of bare platinum aneurysm coiling and a contaminant of percutaneous angiographic intervention is presented. Expand
Propionibacterium acnes‐associated neurosarcoidosis: A case report with review of the literature
TLDR
Histopathologic examination of the excised brain lesion revealed choroid plexus tissue and adjacent cerebral parenchyma with several non‐caseating granulomas, which reinforces the possible link between P. acnes and sarcoidosis. Expand
Propionibacterium acnes and bacterial resistance
TLDR
The present article is aimed at updating dermatologists with the most current data – from the classification to the physiopathogenic mechanisms involved in bacterial resistance to P. acnes and its possible clinical implications. Expand
Utility of strain typing of Propionibacterium acnes in central nervous system and prosthetic joint infections to differentiate contamination from infection: a retrospective cohort
TLDR
Strain type IA-1 was isolated more often in patients with CNS infections, which may indicate a predilection of this strain type to cause CNS infection, and future research should prospectively evaluate strain typing as a means of assisting in the diagnosis of CNS infections. Expand
Transcellular traversal of the blood‐brain barrier by the pathogenic Propionibacterium acnes
TLDR
It has been found that this bacterium could participate in brain inflammation that causes Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease, but how P. acnes invade the brain remains elusive. Expand
A Unique Case of Bilateral Frontal Lobe Abscesses in a Young Male
TLDR
A unique case of a 36 year-old male with a history of heroin abuse who presented with pan-sinusitis and bilateral frontal lobe abscesses, which enabled the doctor to narrow the spectrum of the antibiotics. Expand
Propionibacterium acnes and Acne Vulgaris: New Insights from the Integration of Population Genetic, Multi-Omic, Biochemical and Host-Microbe Studies
TLDR
This extensive review will cover the current knowledge regarding the association of P. acnes phylogroups, clonal complexes and sequence types with acne vulgaris based on multilocus sequence typing of isolates, and direct ribotyping of the P. Acnes strain population in skin microbiome samples based on 16S rDNA metagenomic data. Expand
Conselho Nacional de Revisores
Keloids and hypertrophic scars result from abnormal wound healing with excessive growth of fibrous tissue. Despite the high incidence in the population, the high rates of relapse and the significantExpand

Propionibacterium acnes brain abscess in a patient with HIV-1 infection
TLDR
The case of an HIVpositive patient on stable combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) who was diagnosed with P. acnes brain abscess is described, in the absence of established risk factors. Expand
Focal infections of the central nervous system due to Propionibacterium acnes.
TLDR
Four patients in whom the infection arose as a result of a breach of skin tegument are presented, and it is postulated that P. acnes is an under-recognised pathogen. Expand
Isolation of Propionibacterium acnes from central nervous system infections.
TLDR
Propionibacterium acnes is a common skin colonizer and its involvement in central nervous system (CNS) infections may be related with previous neurosurgical procedures and infections must be surgically managed under adequate antibiotic treatment. Expand
Delayed postoperative intracerebral abscess caused by Proprionibacterium acnes: case report and review of the literature.
TLDR
The inclusion of cerebral abscess by P. acnes is proposed in the differential diagnosis of lesions that mimic tumour recurrences, after clean craniotomies. Expand

Severe infections caused by Propionibacterium acnes: an underestimated pathogen in late postoperative infections.
Propionibacterium acnes belongs to the cutaneous flora of humans and is rarely considered a pathogen in human diseases. It is a frequent contaminant in blood cultures; however, in some patients itExpand
Anaerobic botryomycosis
TLDR
Botryomycosis of the liver developed in a patient receiving corticosteroid therapy, caused by Propionibacterium acnes, which grew only anaerobically. Expand
Sinusitis in the immunocompromised host

TLDR
Sinusitis in HIV-infected patients becomes more prevalent as immunosuppression worsens, and aggressive surveillance, high clinical suspicion, and early diagnosis and treatment are all critical aspects of sinusitis management. Expand
Failure of intravenous antibiotic therapy of multiple temporal brain abscesses due to Propionibacterium acnes requiring temporal lobectomy.
TLDR
A case of a patient with multiple brain abscesses located in the right temporal lobe that occurred after the manipulation of an abscess of the right upper maxillary and one year after the intervention, the patient remained apyretic without any other abscess on cranial computed tomography scan. Expand
Infections caused by Propionibacterium species.
TLDR
It is illustrated that although Propionibacterium species are rarely associated with infections, these organisms can occasionally cause serious infections. Expand
