Campylobacter fetus Bacteraemia Related to Venous Access Device: Case Report and Literature Review
Asian Journal of Case Reports in Medicine and Health,
Campylobacter fetus is a gram negative, microaerophilic bacterium which can cause bacteraemia and invasive infection in humans. Its cause is considered to be close contact with animals and/or consumption of contaminated food of sheep or bovine origin and, therefore, the primary infection site is usually the intestine. Here we report an unusual case of an adult male with catheter-related bloodstream infection caused by C. fetus, and we review other published cases.
