ABSTRACT

Eggerthella lenta is an emerging pathogen. Its laboratory identification is difficult and hence only limited data is available on its disease spectrum. We report an occurrence of a polymicrobial infection in a cutaneous abscess formed at post-trauma suture site, with rare isolation of this anaerobe, in a healthy immunocompetent man. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2020; 10(4): 230-233.

Keywords: Eggerthella lenta, wound infection, anaerobic bacteria
