Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) Infection

Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) is a type of bacterium that can be found in soil and water. B. cepacia bacteria are often resistant to common antibiotics, making infections difficult to treat.

According to CDC, “B. cepacia poses little medical risk to healthy people. However, people who have certain health problems like weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, particularly cystic fibrosis, may be more susceptible to infections with B. cepacia. B cepacia is a known cause of infections in hospitalized patients.”
