Abstract

Streptobacillus moniliformis was identified as etiologic agent of arthritis utilizing a 16S rDNA molecular kit in our clinical laboratory. With the increasing of human contacts with rat as pet, this method would appear suitable to identify fastidious Gram-negative rod involved in arthritis specially when the clinical context is not evocative.
