Abstract

We report a case of bypass graft infection and bacteremia caused by Anaerostipes caccae. A review of the literature shows no reported human infection caused by this microorganism to date. The patient was initially treated with vancomycin and piperacillin-tazobactam on admission and with amoxicillin-clavulanate upon discharge. The slow-growing organism was subsequently found to be susceptible to metronidazole and ertapenem.
