Description:

Pseudomonas luteola is agramnegative bacillus rarely causing human infections. However, Reports have been building up on different types of infections caused by this potentially emerging microorganism. Here we report a case of liver mass with necrosis, subphrenic and pleural effusions. P. luteola liver infection was treated successfully as inpatient for few days with imipenem followed by ciprofloxacin.The bacterial isolate was found susceptible to a wide range of antimicrobial agents but was resistant to colistin.
