Bacillus species are ubiquitous gram-positive spore-forming organisms. They rarely cause disease in the immunocompetent and are more frequently isolated as a culture contaminant. However, Bacillus Species can cause severe systemic infections in immunocompromised patients including preterm infants.
The purpose of this study is to identify the risk factors of these infections.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Bacillus Cereus Infection||Diagnostic Test: Ways to prevent these infections.|
Non-anthrax Bacillus Species bacteria can be responsible for food poisoning and local infections. Rarely, they lead to severe infections like blood stream infections and meningitis especially in immunocompromised patients like preterm infants.
Bacillus Cereus is the most common members of the genus Bacillus. Only few reports studied these systemic infections in premature neonates. In order to identify the risk factors for severe Bacillus Species infections, we studied retrospectively eleven cases of these infections in our NICU and reviewed series and report cases in literature.

Premature neonates infected with bacillus Species
The investigators studied retrospectively eleven cases of these infections in our NICU and reviewed series and report cases in literature.
Diagnostic Test: Ways to prevent these infections.
The purpose of this database is to describe the pathogenicity of this germ, the incriminated modes of contamination.
The collaborators studied the factors of poor prognosis and propose ways to prevent these infections.
- Severe infection rate due to Bacillus Sp germ [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 year. ]The purpose of this database is to mesure the pathogenicity of this germ based on the severe infection rate
- To collecte the incriminated modes of contamination. [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 year. ]The purpose of this database is to describe the incriminated modes of contamination.
