Fusobacterium spp. au CHU de Rennes : épidémiologie des bactériémies chez les alcoolodépendants

Abstract : The genus Fusobacterium includes Gram-negative anaerobic bacteria found in oral, intestinal and vaginal microbiota, and the best-known species are F. nucleatum and F. necrophorum. The genus is associated with a wide variety of pathologies ranging from angina to colon cancer to maternal-fetal infection. At the University Hospital of Rennes, 65 patients who developed Fusobacterium spp. bacteremia were listed between 2011 and 2017. F. nucleatum is the most common species (41%), followed by F. necrophorum (23%). Men (68%) are more affected than women. The associated comorbidities are cancer episodes (42%), smoking (28%), alcoholism (26%) and high blood pressure (26%). The pathophysiology leading to an infection in the patient with an alcohol- related disease has been deepened with a section dedicated to the advice to be provided in the pharmacy to this particular population
