Abstract

Although rarely isolated from cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, is associated with accelerated lung function decline. During 18 years of epidemiological surveillance in the major Portuguese CF centre in Lisbon, only one patient was infected with . Pulmonary deterioration, associated with the evolution of forced expiratory volume in 1 s, occurred during 5.5 years of colonization with this clone (with the new sequence type ST-668). Transient co-colonization with and other bacterial and fungal pathogens occurred, but prevailed until the patient’s death. The systematic assessment of relevant phenotypes for the sequential clonal isolates examined in this retrospective study (14 of and four of ) showed that they were variants, although in general no isolation time-dependent pattern of alteration was identified. However, the first isolate retrieved was more susceptible to gentamicin, imipenem and tobramycin, and exhibited a higher swarming motility compared with most of the isolates obtained during the later stages of disease progression and antimicrobial therapy.
