1920. Ocular Involvement in Candidemia Patients at an Urban Tertiary Care Center: Is Inpatient Ophthalmologic Consultation Essential?

Robert Brunner, Zaw Min, Rasha Abdulmassih, Nitin Bhanot,

AbstractBackgroundVisual loss is a feared consequence of candidemia. The IDSA recommends dilated eye examination for all patients diagnosed with candidemia, irrespective of symptoms. Approximately 1% of patients with candidemia have ocular involvement. Given the low incidence, we posit that inpatient ophthalmologic consultation may not be required for every candidemic patient.MethodsWe ... Read more >>

Propionibacterium acnes: Time-to-Positivity in Standard Bacterial Culture From Different Anatomical Sites.

Rasha Abdulmassih, Jina Makadia, James Como, Michelle Paulson, Zaw Min, Nitin Bhanot,

Propionibacterium acnes infections are likely under-recognized and underreported. This is partly because of low clinical suspicion, perceived non-pathogenicity, or lack of adequate culture incubation time. We conducted a study to assess the optimal incubation period to recover P. acnes from specimens acquired during the workup of suspected clinical infections.A 5-year ... Read more >>
