Urinary tract infection caused by a small colony variant form of capnophilic Escherichia coli leading to misidentification and non-reactions in antimicrobial susceptibility tests.

Antimicrobial resistance and infection control. 2018-11-20; 7.139.

Small colony and capnophilic variant cases have been separately reported, but there has been no reports of their simultaneous presence in one isolate. We report a case of with coexpressed small colony and capnophilic phenotypes causing misidentification in automated biochemical kits and non-reactions in antimicrobial susceptibility test cards.
