Consecutive lower respiratory tract samples of 4 intubated and mechanically ventilated patients with pneumonia. Bacteria are shown at genus level. Unclassified sequences in sample 304-3B-ASP-0 revealed Escherichia/Shigella sp. using a confidence threshold of 0.63. Comparison of these sequences with reference sequences using BLAST yielded uncultured Shigella sp. 16s rRNA genes. Unclassified sequences in sample 313-3B-VAP-0 revealed Enterobacter sp. using a confidence threshold of 0.63. Comparison of these sequences with reference sequences using BLAST yielded uncultured proteobacterium 16s rRNA genes. VAP = Ventilator associated pneumonia, ASP = aspiration pneumonia, NAP = nosocomial acquired pneumonia.
