Abstract

Gemella morbillorum, a Gram-positive coccus facultative anaerobe, is part of the normal flora of the mucous membranes of the oropharynx, upper respiratory, gastrointestinal, and female genital tracts. However, this species can also cause serious infection. We herein report on a case of bacteremia, accompanied by peritonitis and pleuritis, in a 46-year-old immunocompetent female following a total laparoscopic hysterectomy for endometrial cancer. The case was successfully treated with antibacterial and antifungal agents.
