Abstract

Bacillus cereus is a Gram-positive rod that can cause food intoxication, localized infection, or bacteremia with potential organ involvement (e.g., meningitis, cerebral and liver abscesses, pneumonia, etc.). Patients with neutropenia and/or hematological diseases are at greater risk for invasive B. cereus infections.
