Recurrent Sepsis Caused by Streptococcus pyogenes

Rasmussen, Magnus LU (2011) In Journal of Clinical Microbiology 49(4). p.1671-1673
Abstract
I report that a 75-year-old man with severe atherosclerosis experienced two episodes of bacteremia with Streptococcus pyogenes of type emm87. Recurrent sepsis with S. pyogenes is extremely rare, and a foot ulcer was the suspected point of entry. The patient did not develop opsonizing antibodies to the isolate.
