(CNN) — Every 15 minutes, someone in the United States dies of a superbug that has learned to outsmart even our most sophisticated antibiotics, according to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s about 35,000 deaths each year from drug-resistant infections, according to the landmark report. The report places five drug-resistant superbugs on the CDC’s “urgent threat” list — two more germs than were on the CDC’s list in 2013, the last time the agency issued a report on antibiotic resistance. Genetic research shows germs have become especially adep...

We present a 23-year-old male with a history of cystic fibrosis (CF) with associated renal disease, bronchiectasis, pneumothorax, and distal intestinal obstruction syndrome admitted for CF exacerbation. Sputum culture was positive for methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Chest imaging revealed extensive opacities in the left lung. His FEV1 during admission was 52% (baseline 70%). Allergy was consulted as inhaled vancomycin therapy was preferred, but the patient had previous vancomycin-induced reactions.

Bacterial cultures of nasal secretions from the middle meatus, obtained by rhinoscopy, may mirror the microbial environment within the sinuses. In theory, nasal mucus blown from the nose may produce a more accurate culture result than a swab of nasal mucous membranes. It is common to find antibiotic resistant bacteria as a cause of chronic sinusitis. Antibiotic sensitivity testing of bacterial isolates can aid in directing therapeutic choices. Pantoea agglomerans (formerly Enterobacter agglomerans) is a gram-negative aerobic bacillus that has rarely been reported as a cause of chronic sinusitis.
