Abstract

Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is emerging as a pathogen in postneurosurgical infections. A case of cranial bone flap infection due to P. acnes successfully treated with daptomycin is presented. This case demonstrates the potential of daptomycin as an option in the treatment of P. acnes.
