Abstract

A Burkholderia cepacia complex outbreak occurred among ventilated non-cystic fibrosis patients in an intensive care unit (ICU) in Italy: 33 colonized and 13 infected patients were included in a retrospective study aimed at investigating factors related to clinical infection and mortality. Demographic/clinical conditions and mortality did not vary significantly between colonized and infected patients, both groups showing high mortality rates compared with the overall ICU population and similar to that observed in patients with other infections. In multivariate regression analysis, disease severity (defined by the Simplified Acute Physiology Score II) and age were the only independent predictors of early mortality (odds ratio: 1.12; 95% confidence interval: 1.02-1.26; and 1.07; 1.01-1.15, respectively).
