Description

As part of an institutional review board–approved quality improvement project reviewing 10 years of experience (2009–2018) with Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteremia (PAB) at our institution, we identified 15 patients with recurrent Pseudomonas bacteremia. Because recurrent P. aeruginosa bacteremia (RPAB) is uncommon, we reviewed our patients with PAB to evaluate its occurrence, epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and outcomes of care.

Subject

This was an institutional review board–approved quality improvement project. We reviewed the medical records of all patients with PAB from January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2018, and identified the subset of patients with RPAB. We report the incidence, epidemiology, source of bacteremia, comorbid conditions, treatment, and outcome for patients with RPAB. We compare these data to previously published series of PAB patients with RPAB.
