Tsukamurella tyrosinosolvens--an unusual case report of bacteremic pneumonia after lung transplantation.

AbstractBACKGROUND:
Lung transplant recipients have an increased risk for actinomycetales infection secondary to immunosuppressive regimen.
CASE PRESENTATION:
A case of pulmonary infection with bacteremia due to Tsukamurella tyrosinosolvens in a 54-year old man who underwent a double lung transplantation four years previously is presented.
CONCLUSION:
The identification by conventional biochemical assays was unsuccessful and hsp gene sequencing was used to identify Tsukamurella tyrosinosolvens.
