Abstract

Septicaemia due to occurs infrequently. A case of septicaemia with a known skin focus is reported in a 69-year-old male with ischaemia, refractory anaemia and treated for thyroid cancer. The characterization and typing of blood and cutaneous isolates was carried out using biochemical and DNA molecular typing methods to analyse the isolates. This is the first reported case with a documented source.
