Abstract

We describe the isolation and cultural characteristics of a Gram-negative bacillus that is very similar to the presumed etiologic agent of cat scratch disease. The organism was isolated from a tibial lesion of a male patient who had been hospitalized for severe necrotizing pancreatitis. The significance of the isolate in this patient remains uncertain.
