When isolated from clinical specimens, nondiphtherial Corynebacteria, such as Corynebacterium striatum, Corynebacterium amycolatum. ABSTRACT. We describe an unusual cluster of Corynebacterium striatum infections in 21 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) admitted. Objective: To evaluate the clinical significance of and describe factors associated with Corynebacterium striatum infection. Methods: A.

The majority of cases striatumm C. Therefore, daptomycin can also be considered as an alternative to vancomycin for treatment of C. Although an implantable cardioverter defibrillator CRT-D, Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy-Defibrillationwith biventricular pacing function, was replaced with PM for severe left ventricular functional decline, on day 12 of admission, an intra-aortic balloon pump IABP was also inserted because of multiple organ failure.
