    Abstract

    Serious infections such as endocarditis due to XDR-Gram-negative bacteria are an increasing challenge. This article presents successful adjunctive use of cefiderocol for a patient with persistently bacteremic healthcare-associated native aortic valve endocarditis due to an ESBL-positive P. aeruginosa susceptible in vitro only to colistin, following failure of conventional therapeutic options.
