A tale of two unusual anaerobic bacterial infections in an immunocompetent man: A case report and literature review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We report a case of an immunocompetent man who presented with Desulfovibrio fairfieldensis bacteremia, followed by an epidural abscess due to Parvimonas micra. Only few cases have described unique clinical features related to both organisms, and this report illustrates two distinct sequential, if not concurrent, syndromes due to these anaerobes.
