Abstract

has been associated with open wound infections, cellulitis, osteomyelitis, and bacteremia.

We report the case of a 41 year old woman with history of congenital myelomeningocele, paraplegia and extensive decubitus ulcers that developed bacteremia secondary to an infected ulcer.

is an emerging human pathogen that can be readily identified by MALDI-TOF or sequencing.
