The bacterium was thought to have reached the bloodstream through extensive desquamative skin rashes caused by the interleukin-2 treatment or by contamination of the catheter, although cultures from these specimens were negative.
Sometimes, the Gram stain is more helpful than the culture; desquamative inflammatory vaginitis would be missed with culture alone done.
