Yes, the serovar seems unusual but that has no clinical significance.
A handful of serovars are know for tending to be especially virulent
but any serovar in subs. choleraesuis is by definition a pathogen.
What is interesting here is that the bug invaded as evidenced by the
fact that the bug was recovered by blood culture.
Nothing has been said so far about what GI symptoms may or may not have
been present. Nor has anything been said about the overall health
of the individual--- there may well be 'host' issues contributing to
the successful invasion.
I'd like to hear more about this situation and the commnents of
any infectious disease specialists who might follow this thread.
