Özet

Pseudomonas stutzeri is an aerobic, nonfermentative, Gram-negative rod with polar monotrichous flagella. We report the case of a four-year-old boy who developed community-acquired pneumonia and empyema caused by P. stutzeri. To our knowledge, this is the first report on community-acquired pneumonia and empyema caused by this organism in childhood.
