Introduction: Bordetella bronchiseptica is an aerobic, Gram-negative pleomorphic coccobacillus. It can infect various mammals including cats, dogs, and pigs. Bordetella bronchiseptica rarely infect humans. Infants, immunosuppressed and HIV infected persons, and patients with comorbidities constitute the risk group for B. bronchiseptica infections. Bordetella bronchiseptica may lead to disseminated infection, cavitary pneumonia, and rarely fatal tracheobronchitis and sepsis.
