Abstract

Bordetella bronchiseptica bacteremia is often associated with various infection in animals. The majority of B bronchiseptica infections reported in humans are cases of pneumonia. Very few cases have been reported in patients with a history of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The patient described herein, who had a history of AIDS, was likely infected with B bronchiseptica as a result of his hemodialysis catheter. The patient was successfully treated with antibiotics without the removal of the catheter.
