Long-term respiratory tract infection with canine-associated Pasteurella dagmatis and Neisseria canis in a patient with chronic bronchiectasis.
Pasteurella dagmatis and Neisseria canis were repeatedly isolated from the sputum of a poodle-owning patient with chronic bronchiectasis. Commercially available systems failed to identify these unusual organisms: identification was made by 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Difficulties identifying these and five other canine-associated isolates (P. dagmatis [n = 2], Pasteurella canis [n = 2], and N. canis [n = 1]) are discussed.
