Even though their level of virulence is low and they rarely cause infections in humans, these pathogens have been associated with a wide spectrum of infections involving the central nervous system and the gastrointestinal, urinary, or respiratory tracts [1]. The fact that Citrobacter spp. are rather uncommon in clinical specimens explains why few… CONTINUE READING
