SESSION TYPE: Student/Resident Case Report Poster

INTRODUCTION: Infection with Burkholderia cepacia complex (BCC) is considered a relative contraindication to lung transplantation in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients due to poor survival rates after transplant. However BCC is comprised of approximately 20 distinct species and not all confer the same risk. Several studies demonstrate that patients infected with some of the non-cenocepacia Burkholderia species have similar outcomes compared to uninfected individuals. There is a paucity of data regarding outcomes in patients with B. seminalis. We present the first documented case of a patient with a chronic B. seminalis infection undergoing lung transplant.
