Abstract


Actinobacillus ureae, formerly known as Pasteurella ureae, is a rare human pathogen. Twenty-eight cases of A. ureae infections in humans have been reported since its first description in 1960. Various predisposing conditions such as skull fracture, alcohol abuse, neurosurgery, schizophrenia, odontal infection, diabetes, HIV infection/AIDS, Waldenstr?m macroglobulinemia, COPD, malnutrition, rheumatoid arthritis, HCV hepatitis, etanercept, or methotrexate have been associated with infections caused by A. ureae. We report the first case, in the medline-based literature, of A. ureae psoas muscle abscess and sepsis in a HBV carrier patient.
