Bactériémies à Clostridium spp.: signification clinique analyse rétrospective de 41 cas dont trois cas de bactériémies à Clostridium orbiscindens

Abstract : Clostridial bacteremia are infrequent but their incidence remains stable. Their occurrence is more frequent in immnnocompromised or elderly patients and there is often a malignancy as an underlying disease. The clinical significance of these hacteremia is still controversial and is not easy to specify in non-toxinic infections. The progress in molecular biology permit us to identify in blood cultures new species of Clos/ridium, whose pathogenicity remains uncIear. After the discovery of 3 cases of Clostridium orbiscindens bacteremia in Nancy Hospital between 2004 and 2006, we make a retrospective study on 41 Clostridium spp. bacteremia. First we give sorne generalities on Clostridial species, then we develop the results of our study and detail the Clostridium orbiscindens bacteremia. The aim of the stndy is to compare our results with literature and to discuss clinical significance of Clostridial bacteremia.
