Peritonitis caused by Roseomonas mucosa after ventriculoperitoneal shunt revision: a case report

We report the first-ever case of peritonitis caused byRoseomonas mucosa, shortly after the revision of a VPS ventricular catheter. Hardware removal and proper antibiotic therapy led to the patient ’s recovery.Roseomonas mucosa is an opportunistic skin pathogen with an antibiotic resistance profile to many beta-lactamines and a tropism for indwelling catheters and post-operative period. Nowadays, it should be taken into account in case of infection of indwelling catheters and for some implantable medical devices.
