Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a major pathogen in burn wound infections. We present one of the first reports of small-colony variant (SCV) emergence of P. aeruginosa, taken from a patient under aminoglycosides for a persistent burn wound infection. We confirm the causative role of a single ispA mutation in SCV emergence and increased aminoglycoside resistance. IspA is involved in the synthesis of ubiquinone, providing a possible link between electron transport and SCV formation in P. aeruginosa.
