Nonpuerperal breast abscess (NPBA) has different etiology as compared to the mastitis occurring in post partum women. The condition presents either as acute suppurative infection or chronic type. Organisms usually implicated are Staphylococcus aureus, coagulase negative staphylococci, and anaerobes. Mostly the infection is polymicrobial in nature. Herein, we report the isolation of Enterococcus faecalis from a case of acute suppurative NPBA.
