Abstract

Prior to the advent of the type b vaccine, invasive infections due to type f were rarely described. However, the epidemiology of is changing. While the incidence of invasive infections due to is declining in children, such infections are becoming more common in adults, particularly in the elderly. Here, we report an unusual case of infective aortic aneurysm caused by type f that underlines the emerging clinical relevance and pathogenic capability of this organism.
