Alvaro Hoyos-Orrego, Natalí Naranjo-Bustamante, Luisa López-Torres, Nathalia Vélez-Sanjuan, Clara Rico-Posada

Resumen


Clostridium spp. es un bacilo grampositivos, anaerobio, formador de esporas y ampliamente distribuido en el ambiente. Las infecciones por Clostridium perfringens en neonatos son en extremo raras. La sepsis grave por anaerobios, incluyendo el choque séptico, es un evento clínico inusual en este grupo de pacientes. Se reportan dos casos de bacteriemia por C. perfringens asociados a choque séptico fulminante en recién nacidos con enterocolitis necrosante grave.
