Abstract

Raoultella planticola has been considered a relatively harmless Gram-negative bacteria, rarely associated with clinical infection. However, in recent years, the frequency at which severe infection by R. planticola and drug-resistant strains are reported in literature has increased. Here, we present one case of acute cholecystitis caused by R. planticola, and review all previously reported cases of the infection in an attempt to identify new trends in biological and clinical features of R. planticola infections.
