Abstract

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the most important pathogens causing opportunistic infections. This literature review contains analysis of articles on molecular characteristics of P. aeruginosa virulence factors, as well as the pathogenesis of pseudomonal infections, which involves the complex interactions between the microorganism and a host. Different types of pseudomonal infections, including polymicrobial infections involving P. aeruginosa are described. Diagnosis, treatment options, and prophylactic measures for infections caused by P. aeruginosa are considered in detail.
