A Compilation of Cases Suffering from Pneumonia Caused by Pseudomonas mosselli in Immunocompromised Patients

Background: Pseudomonas mosselli is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped, aerobic, non-sporing, motile bacterium that lives in the soil alongside plants and defends them from bacterial and fungal diseases by producing a range of chemicals. It results in opportunistic infections in immunosuppressed individuals. Fever, respiratory discomfort, and a purulent cough are the most typical respiratory infection manifestations. Our research aims to demonstrate the infectious potential of uncommon isolates like Pseudomonas mosselii in immunosuppressed individuals.

Three cases make up our case series. Case 1 had type 2 diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, and was also found to be SARS-CoV-2 positive by RT-PCR (Real time polymerase chain reaction). Case 2 had Takosubo cardiomyopathy and was on the verge of going into heart failure. Case 3 had advanced renal failure and was receiving steroid therapy as well as weekly dialysis. From respiratory samples of these individuals who had been hospitalised to a tertiary care facility, Pseudomonas mossellii was identified. Culture features, biochemical processes, and species identification using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-time of flight-mass spectrometry were used for identification (MALDI-TOF-MS).

In conclusion, immunocompromised people who contract opportunistic infections from Pseudomonas mosselii. It may readily be tested for antibiotic susceptibility after causing respiratory infections that can be treated with medicines.
