Hospital-acquired pneumonia due to Burkholderia cepacia in a thalassemia pregnancy with postoperative eclampsia: A case report.

There are limited case reports on individuals infected with Burkholderia cepacia who do not have typical risk factors, particularly pregnant women with beta-thalassemia. A 34-year-old pregnant female with beta-thalassemia trait and hypertension was admitted to the hospital. The patient was diagnosed with eclampsia and underwent a cesarean section. After two days following the surgery, the patient experienced hospitality-acquired pneumonia. B . cepacia was isolated from blood cultures, and antibiotic susceptibility testing indicated sensitivity to trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole and levofloxacin. The patient responded to antibiotic treatment. These findings highlight the importance of prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment in managing B.cepacia infections in pregnant beta-thalassemia patients.
