Resumen

DIAZ PEROMINGO, José Antonio et al. Streptococcus constellatusas a causative agent of empyema: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2006, vol.134, n.8, pp.1030-1032. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872006000800013.

Streptococcus constellatus is a commensal microorganism in man but may cause infections in different locations. We report a 59 years old male with severe sequelae of a previous cerebrovascular accident that consulted in the emergency room for fever of 15 days of evolution. A right empyema was diagnosed. The bacteriological culture of the effusion disclosed the presence of Streptococcus constellatus and two anaerobic strains (Prevotella intermedia and Fusobacterium urealyticus). The patient was treated with a pleural drainage and received ceftriaxone and clindamycin during six weeks. He was discharged in good conditions and is asymptomatic after eight months of follow up (Rev Méd Chile 2006; 134: 1030-2)

Palabras clave : Ceftriaxone; Empyema, pleural; Streptococcus constellatus.
