Community acquired Roseomonas infection in a pre-existing Tubercular lung lesion.

Kaore NM, Khan Z, Aher AR, Ramnani VK - Lung India (2014)

Bottom Line: Roseomonas are nonfermenting opportunistic Gram-negative bacilli belonging to the newly established genus of Roseomonas.The clinical experience with the species is limited and is difficult to diagnose because of limited expertise and lack of commercially available identification kits with any of the automated systems.This is a first ever reported case of secondary bacterial infection due to Roseomonas genomospecies 6 in a patient of pulmonary tuberculosis from the Indian subcontinent.

ABSTRACT
Roseomonas are nonfermenting opportunistic Gram-negative bacilli belonging to the newly established genus of Roseomonas. The clinical experience with the species is limited and is difficult to diagnose because of limited expertise and lack of commercially available identification kits with any of the automated systems. This is a first ever reported case of secondary bacterial infection due to Roseomonas genomospecies 6 in a patient of pulmonary tuberculosis from the Indian subcontinent.

Figure 1: Shows Roseomons genomospecies 6 on MHA plate on left with non-diffusible rosy pink pigment production at 25°C and growth on SDA plate on right.

Mentions: Suspecting it to be a member of the pink coccoid group tests were put up to differentiate it from the Methylobacterium group. Unlike methylobacterium the organism was motile, shows growth on MA and Sabaroud's Dextrose Agar (SDA) [Figure 1], unable to utilize methanol for acid production [Figure 2], was non-fluorescing in transmitted U.V. light [Figure 3], unable to utilize acetamide [Figure 2] and non-vacuolation on Gram's stain.[7] The strain was finally identified on the basis of Bile Esculin hydrolysis [Figure 2], citrate utilization and motility with other biochemical test to be Roseomonas genomospecies 6.[8][Chart 1].
