PEREZ, Carlos Eduardo et al. Leuconostoc citreum bacteremia in severe head trauma by firearm missile. Infect. [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.4, pp.211-214. ISSN 0123-9392.

A case of severe head trauma by firearm missiles is presented; bacteremia by Leuconostoc citreum was documented in the course of the disease. The clinical course of the patient and the antibiotic treatment are presented and discussed. The probable route of contamination and the entrance of the bacteria into the blood stream are discussed and the worldwide literature is reviewed. The rarity of this case encouraged the authors to publish it

Keywords : Leuconostoc; Leuconostoc; head trauma; bacteremia; gunshot wound.
