Description:Under a magnification of 320X, this digitally-colorized, Leifson flagella-stained sample revealed the presence of a number of Gram-negative, polar flagellated, Brevundimonas diminuta, formerly Pseudomonas diminuta bacteria.
Brevundimonas diminuta is only rarely found to be a human pathogen, usually infecting immunocompromised cancer patients. These that have been isolated and tested were found to be resistant to fluoroquinolones, a subset of the synthetically-manufactured antimicrobial drugs known as quinolones.
