Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a Gram-negative, aerobic rod, belonging to the bacterial family Pseudomonadaceae and is one of the top three causes of opportunistic human infections. It is a versatile bacterium that grows in soil, marshes and coastal marine habitats, as well as on plant and animal tissues. It occurs regularly on the surfaces of plants and occassionally on the surfaces of animals. The bacterium is an opportunistic pathogen and hence, exploits some break in the host defenses to initiate an infection. It causes urinary tract infections, respiratory system infections, dermatitis, soft tissue infections, bacteremia, bone and joint infections, gastrointestinal infections and a variety of systemic infections, particularly in patients with severe burns and in cancer and AIDS patients who are [...]
