Abstract

Enterococcus hirae, member of the Enterococcus genus known to cause infection in animals, is rarely encountered in clinical practice. There are no published reports describing clinical features of Enterococcus hirae infection in humans. A case of Enterococcus hirae septicemia in a 49-year-old patient with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis is reported here. A review of the available literature regarding the clinical spectrum of Enterococcus hirae infection in humans and the antimicrobial susceptibility of Enterococcus hirae is also included.
