ABSTRACT

The significance of isolating Pasteurella multocida from respiratory specimens has not been fully investigated. We retrospectively investigated clinical features and outcomes of 25 patients (4 cases of colonization, 16 of chronic lower respiratory infection, 4 of pneumonia or lung abscess, and 1 of pyothorax) in whom P. multocida had been isolated. They were aged 68.1±9.6 years and included 12 men. Ten patients had been exposed to animals, and underlying respiratory diseases were found in 21. Those with pneumonia, lung abscess, and empyema improved by means of antibiotics and/or thoracic drainage. In conclusion, patients in whom P. multocida had been isolated from respiratory specimens frequently had underlying respiratory disease. Among these patients, most had chronic lower respiratory tract infection, but some developed acute infections.
