Abstract

Gordonia amicalis infection has never been reported in humans. We report here the first case of G. amicalis-related cutaneous infection after a traumatic injury. The isolate was confirmed by 16S rRNA sequencing analysis, and the patient responded well to repeated debridement and antibiotic treatment.
