Abstract

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is not considered as a pathogen in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) when considering empiric antibiotic therapy. It is important to consider this organism in certain risk groups such as diabetics, alcoholics, cigarette smokers, patients with cystic fibrosis, malignancy, bronchiectasis and heart disease. This is a case report of such a patient.
