Symptoms of B. cepacia infection
Symptoms associated with infections caused by B. cepacia are very similar to the symptoms of other diseases of the lungs such as pneumonia and cystic fibrosis. These symptoms include:
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- Phlegm build-up/congestion
If the deterioration of the lungs progresses far enough, the lung function may decrease to the point that they may not be able to adequately supply the body with oxygen which may result in death.
