Abstract
Though the pathogenic significance and the reservoir of Ewingella americana have
not been clarified, this organism has caused several pathogenic infections, especially
in immunocompromised patients. We report a pneumonia in a patient with chronic
renal failure, who had chronic rejection of transplanted kidney. E. americana was
identified to be the pathogen of pneumonia with clinical symptoms and signs and
radiological examination. As soon as he was treated with ceftriaxone and isepamicin,
clinical improvement was followed with no further growth of E. americana or other
pathogenic isolates from sputum culture. This suggests to be the case of pneumonia
caused by E. americana for the first time in the Korean literature
