abstract

  • The enterococci are common human pathogens. Enterococcus avium is a rare cause of infection in humans. A variety of immunological alterations in the intestinal mucosa of patients with ulcerative colitis may predispose them to unusual organisms. We report the first case of E. avium bacteremia in a patient with ulcerative colitis.
