This report describes our experience with sulbactam/cefoperazone in the treatment of a 36-year-old man with acute prostatitis (complicated with bilateral epididymitis) caused by S. salivarius. The patient had no past history suggesting the relationship between this organism and the route of infection. The isolated strain exhibited a high susceptibility to the drug and symptoms subsided after treatment with a daily dose of 4 g sulbactam/cefoperazone for 7 days. Usually, the most causative bacteria of acute prostatitis are either GNR or E. faecalis. However, as in the present case, there may be very few cases in which the infection has been caused by a strain of Streptococcus species.
