FROM CULT TO CULTURE, A CASE OF DISSEMINATED FUSOBACTERIUM NUCLEATUM
AbstractFusobacterium nucleatum is an anaerobic Gram-negative rod commonly found
in the oral cavity. We report a woman recently living in a Puerto Rican
cult, presenting with abdominal pain and weight loss, found to have a
liver abscess growing F. nucleatum extending to the pericardium, as well
as a tubo-ovarian abscess.
