Fly reservoir associated with Wohlfahrtiimonas bacteremia in a human.

Bonwitt, Jesse H. and Tran, Michael and Dykstra, Elizabeth A. and Eckmann, Kaye and Bell, Melissa E. and Leadon, Michael and Sixberry, Melissa and Glover, William A. (2018) 'Fly reservoir associated with Wohlfahrtiimonas bacteremia in a human.', Emerging infectious diseases., 24 (2). pp. 370-373.


Wohlfahrtiimonas species bacteria were isolated from the bloodstream of a patient with septicemia and wound myiasis. Environmental investigations identified a Wohlfahrtiimonas sp. among insects in the Americas and in a previously undescribed vector, the green bottle fly (Lucilia sericata). The isolates possibly represent a new species within the genus Wohlfahrtiimonas.
