Abstract

Colonization of the oropharynx by Kingella kingae is currently considered to be a prerequisite for later development of invasive infections. However, the oropharyngeal K. kingae DNA bacterial load in children with osteoarticular infections caused by this microorganism is not different than that of asymptomatic carriers.
