Name
Providencia stuartii infection
Description
Providencia is a gram-negative urea-metabolizing bacilli that readily incorporates DNA from other bacteria, enabling it to acquire resistance to a broad spectrum of antibiotics. Providencia stuartii is a bacterium normally found in patients with indwelling urinary catheters, where it causes urinary tract infections. These infections may progress to bacteremia. Diarrhea, peritonitis, meningitis, and infections of burn wounds, the endocarditis and the brain abscess attributed to P. stuartii have also been reported.
