Rothia mucilaginosa is part of the normal flora of the oral cavity and is typically is not associated with acute infection. However, growing evidence suggests that Rothia mucilaginosa can be an opportunistic pathogen in immunocompromised hosts. We present a case of Rothia bacteremia in a patient with a compromised immune system due to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and stage IV bulky diffuse large B cell lymphoma affecting the pharyngeal space.
