Abstract We report the first case of Myroides phaeus isolated from blood, causing bacteremia in an immunocompromised patient using the automated MicroScan Walk Away 96 system, followed by bacterial identification by amplification-sequencing of the 16S rDNA. The sequences obtained were compared with the reference sequence of the BLAST ® platform - National Library of Medicine, USA, and the isolation was identified as Myroides phaeus strain with 99.67% identity in Blast report. In the literature we did not find previous reported cases of infections by this bacterium, however its pathogenic role is still controversial; therefore, this isolation alerts us to carry out an exhaustive surveillance of other possible acquisition routes.

Myroides species formerly known as Flavobacterium odoratum, a rare clinical isolate often considered as nonpathogenic. Myroides odoratimimus commonly found in the environment and frequently isolated from the immunocompromised patients. The incidence of urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by Myroides species is a rare phenomenon. We describe a rare case of UTI caused by Myroides odoratimimus in an elderly patient.

The genus Myroides comprises several species of Gram-negative, non-motile, and non-fermenting bacteria, which have been regarded as non-pathogenic for decades. Multiple recent reports, however, underscore the pathogenic potential that Myroides sp. possesses for humans. These bacteria seem to be resistant to a wide range of antibiotics (including s-lactams and aminoglycosides). Therefore, treatment options are limited. Knowledge of antimicrobial resistance, however, is based on only one meaningfu...

We report a case of recurrent post-traumatic ulcer infection due to Myroides odoratimimus in an immunocompromised male. We have also reviewed the medical literature on isolated M. odoratimimus infections. The strain, isolated from ulcer discharge, was multidrug-resistant and treatment with meropenem, based on susceptibility testing, led to resolution of infection. The strain was also able to form a relevant amount of biofilm over time, thus suggesting a possible role of sessile communities in th...

Abstract Antibiotics, antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB), antibiotic-resistance genes (ARGs), and mobile genetic elements (MGEs) have been reported in many environments. However, the investigation of their occurrence and diversity in untreated hospital wastewater is still insufficient. High concentrations of antibiotic residues were found in hospital wastewater using solid-phase extraction and UPLC–MS/MS analysis. The concentrations of six of 14 antibiotics reached μg/L levels in the hospital w...

Background: urinary tract infections are one of the main causes of disease infections in the medical practice. There are other less common bacteria found in hospitals environment that join the usual ones, which make the patients’ response to treatments more difficult. Objective: to establish the participation of bacterial species in urinary infections diagnosed to patients assisted at Amalia Simoni Hospital in Camaguey. Methods: a transversal, descriptive, observational study was conducted at a ...

Abstract Myroides species are bacteria found commonly in environmental sources, such as water and soil. Despite this, they are historically uncommon pathogens, tending to affect primarily immunocompromised hosts. Based on a review of the current cases listed in the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine (Table 1), there have been 48 reported cases of infection to date, one third of which have been reported in only the last seven years. This report outlines a case of ba...

This study is aimed to assess if hospital effluents represent an important supplier of multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria that, being discharged in the municipal collector, may be disseminated in the environment and bypassed in water quality control systems. From a set of 101 non-Escherichia coli Gram-negative bacteria with reduced susceptibility to quinolones, was selected a group of isolates comprised by those with the highest indices of MDR (defined as nonsusceptibility to at le...

A Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, rod-shaped bacteria, designated M09-0166Tand M09-1053 were isolated from human urine samples. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis revealed that the isolates belong to the Myroides cluster and were closely related to Myroides phaeus DSM 23313T (96.3 %), Myroides odoratimimus KCTC 23053T (96.1 %), Myroides profundi KCTC 23066T (96.0 %), Myroides odoratus KCTC 23054T (95.4 %) and Myroides pelagicus KCTC 12661T (95.2 %). The major mena quinone was identified as MK-6. T...

Abstract The genus Myroides comprises the 2 medically relevant species Myroides odoratus and Myroides odoratimimus that are rare opportunistic pathogens and cause infections in immunocompromised patients. A fast identification of Myroides is of importance because these bacterial strains show multiple resistance against antibiotics and therefore limit treatment options. They are associated, for instance, with urinary tract infections, sepsis, meningitis, pneumonia, and infectious cellulitis. Sinc...

A novel bacterial strain, designated MY15T, was isolated from a saliva sample taken from a student during a teaching experiment in China. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the novel strain was most closely related to Myroides marinus JS-08T, Myroides odoratimimus LMG 4029T and Myroides profundi D25T with 96.5 %, 96.3 % and 96.1 % gene sequence similarities, respectively, demonstrating that the novel strain belonged to the genus Myroides . Strain MY15T formed pale...
