Hoff RT, Patel A, Shapiro A. Pseudomonas aeruginosa: an uncommon cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhea in an immunocompetent ambulatory adult. Case Rep Gastrointest Med. 2020;2020:6261748.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic Gram-negative pathogen known to cause enterocolitis in children, amongst other types of infections. Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been widely reported as a cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhea in adult immunocompromised hosts. We present an 81-year-old previously healthy female as the first reported case of Pseudomonas aeruginosa antibiotic-associated diarrhea in an immunocompetent host in the United States.
