Short blood culture time-to-positivity in Fusobacterium necrophorum bacteremia is associated with Lemierre's syndrome

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The usefulness of blood culture time-to-positivity (TTP) in the diagnosis of endovascular infections has previously been shown. Here, we investigated TTP in 41 patients with F. necrophorum bacteraemia and found an association between short TTP and Lemierre's syndrome (p = 0.026).
