Abstract

We report a new case of spondylodiscitis due to Kingella kingae in a 19-month-old infant who had torticollis as the first manifestation. The main characteristics of Kingella kingae infections are reviewed: frequency of ENT and joint localizations, slow course, difficult clinical and bacteriological diagnosis, and satisfactory susceptibility to antimicrobial agents.
