"We present 53 pediatric cases of Pantoea agglomerans infections cultured from normally sterile sites in patients seen
at a children's hospital over 6 years. Isolates included 23 from the bloodstream, 14 from abscesses, 10 from
joints/bones, 4 from the urinary tract, and 1 each from the peritoneum and the thorax. P. agglomerans was most
associated with penetrating trauma by vegetative material and catheter-related bacteremia."

Pantoea ananatis: an unconventional plant pathogen.
Coutinho TA, Venter SN.

Pantoea ananatis causes disease symptoms in a wide range of economically important agricultural crops and forest tree
species worldwide. It is regarded as an emerging pathogen based on the increasing number of reports of diseases
occurring on previously unrecorded hosts in different parts of the world. Its unconventional nature lies in the fact that,
unlike the majority of plant pathogenic microbes, P. ananatis is capable of infecting humans and occurs in diverse
ecological niches, such as part of a bacterial community contaminating aviation jet fuel tanks and contributing to growth
promotion in potato and pepper. TAXONOMY: Bacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; family Enterobacteriaceae; genus
Pantoea. MICROBIOLOGICAL PROPERTIES: Gram-negative; facultatively anaerobic; most strains are motile and
produce a yellow pigment in culture; indole positive. BIOLOGY: Pantoea ananatis is a common epiphyte; it also occurs
endophytically in hosts where it has been reported to cause disease symptoms and in hosts where no such symptoms
have been described. Some strains are ice-nucleating, a feature which has been used as a biological control
mechanism against some insect pests of agricultural crops and by the food industry. DISEASE SYMPTOMS: Pantoea
ananatis infects both monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous plants. The symptoms are diverse depending on the host
infected, and include leaf blotches and spots, die-back, and stalk, fruit and bulb rot. BIOLOGICAL CONTROL AGENT:
Pantoea ananatis has both antifungal and antibacterial properties. These characteristics have the potential of being
exploited by biological control specialists.
