Abstract

A 7-year-old girl developed a wound infection as a result of a tiger bite she sustained. DNA sequence analysis revealed that the causative organisms were Neisseria weaveri and what is, to our knowledge, a previously undescribed subspecies of Pasteurella multocida, for which we propose the designation "Pasteurella multocida subspecies tigris subspecies nov."
