Segniliparus rugosus infection of the lung

Is there any experience with the treatment of Segniliparus rugosus?
Many thanks.

Dear questioner,
unfortunately it is not clear, if you suffer from CF. Until now, there are only a few case reports about infections with Segniliparus rugosus in patients with an underlying lung disease (CF and non-CF). This bacterium belongs to the group of gram-positive, acid resistant bacilli and is related to so-called Rhodococcus spp. or better known as mycobacteria spp.
The experience concerning therapy of this germ is therefore very limitied and is based on in-vitro resistance testing and therapy trials in the frame of the mentioned case reports.
Best regards,
Michael Hogardt
