Gram-Negative Rods as Agents of Nosocomial Disease: Some Recent Developments, with Comments on Mixed Cultures

  • A. von Graevenitz

Abstract

This paper deals with infections due to certain bacteria that occur chiefly, but not exclusively, in hospitalized patients. We followed Brachman’s (4) definition of nosocomial infections as “those which are not apparent on admission but develop afterwards and, when clinically diagnosed, do not appear to have been incubating at the time of admission”. For the identification of the causative organisms, the reader is referred to the bibliography, particularly to references 16 and 61 d. Emphasis has been on recent publications.
