Abstract

Mucoid Stenotrophomonas maltophilia was isolated from the sputum of 2 women. Case 1 which we reported recently was primary pneumonia caused by S. maltophilia. However, in Case 2, mucoid S. maltophilia represented part of the transient flora. Interestingly, colonization of mucoid Pseudomonas aeruginosa on respiratory tract occurred in both cases after mucoid S. maltophilia was isolated from their sputum.
