Abstract

Infection of humans by , a nutritionally variant streptococcus, most commonly takes the form of endocarditis, though a variety of other manifestations ranging from central nervous system abscesses to orthopaedic infections have been seen. We report here what we believe is the first case of bullous impetigo associated with this organism.
