Abstract

Pulmonary granuloma is a common lesion for which gram-negative bacteria are rarely implicated as a cause. Hence, most physicians are unaware of this etiology. We isolated a gram-negative bacterium from a surgically resected pulmonary granuloma in a 42-year-old, nonimmunocompromised woman. Within the necrotizing granuloma, numerous organisms also were demonstrated by Gram stain, suggesting a cause-disease relationship. Characterization of the bacterium by sequence analysis of the 16S ribosomal gene, cellular fatty acid profiling, and microbiologic studies revealed a novel bacterium with a close relationship to Pseudomonas. We propose a new species for the bacterium, Pseudomonas andersonii. These results suggest that the differential diagnosis of a lung granuloma also should include this gram-negative bacterium as a potential causative agent, in addition to the more common infections caused by acid-fast bacilli and fungi. This bacterium was shown to be susceptible to most antibiotics that are active against gramnegative bacteria.
