ملخص

Acinetobacter baumannii is a well-known cause of hospital-acquired pneumonia. Occasionally, it can present as an acute community-acquired pneumonia with a fulminant course. However, the occurrence of the chronic form of community-acquired Acinetobacter pneumonia is yet to be highlighted. We describe a 62-year-old, HIV negative, non-diabetic male, who was referred for evaluation of consolidation and cavitation in the apicoposterior segment of the left upper lobe for 4 months. For this, he had received anti-tuberculous therapy, which included rifampicin. On investigation, a diagnosis of chronic community-acquired pneumonia due to Acinetobacter baumannii was made. The steady clinico-radiologic improvement observed was attributed to rifampicin in the anti-tuberculous regime. Subsequently, an aspergilloma formed in the cavity.
