Abstract

Introduction:

Bacteraemia caused by is rarely reported. Here, we present a case of bacteraemia with in a breast cancer patient.

Case presentation:

was isolated from blood in a breast cancer patient who suffered from oral mucosal barrier breakage for several years. The bacterium was initially identified in the blood culture of the patient by conventional techniques and confirmed by mass spectrometry and sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene. Antibiotics susceptible testing revealed the bacterium was resistant to penicillins, first‐, second‐ and third‐generation cephalosporins and monobactam. PCR was used to detect common β‐lactamase genes; the TEM gene was detected and confirmed by sequencing.

Conclusion:

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of bacteraemia in a breast cancer patient caused by TEM‐producing .
