Abstract

Staphylococcus lugdunensis is being increasingly reported as a pathogen with an outcome resembling that of Staphylococcus aureus rather than coagulase-negative staphylococci. The authors describe a case of a child with left grade II vesicoureteral reflux and pyelonephritis caused by Staphylococcus lugdunensis. The child was successfully treated with cefotaxime.
