Abstract

A 38-year-old man with a history of alcohol abuse developed rapidly fulminating septicaemia and died. Selenomonas sputigena and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus were isolated from a blood culture. Selenomonas sputigena is a motile anaerobic gram-negative rod rarely associated with systemic disease. Difficulties in isolation and taxonomic identification are discussed.
