Sphingomonas paucimobilis from Blood Stream Infection to Spondylodiscitis

Sphingomonas paucimobilis, is a yellow-pigmented, aerobic, non-fermentative, gram negative motile bacillus. S. paucimobilis which is widely found in nature and hospital environments rarely cause serious or life threatening infections. It’s rarely isolated from clinical specimens but it is associated with a great variety of infections in both healthy and immunocompromised people. In this report we present two cases with infection due to S. paucimobilis. One of them was systemic blood stream infection and one focal infection. One was immunocompetent and the other with diabetes mellitus for more than ten years. Both of them were community acquired infection due S. Paucimibilis. These cases are reported to emphasize that S. paucimobilis should be kept in mind as a community acquired infection. We present the first cases of Sphingomonas paucimobilis in Albania one of which is a spondylodiscitis in immunocompetent patient and include updated literature concerning infections by this microorganism.
