Abstract

Anaerobiospirillum succiniciproducens is an uncommon yet potentially lethal gram-negative bacterium typically affecting patients with comorbidities. We report a case of A. succiniciproducens infection in an autopsy patient who had hepatitis C and type 2 diabetes and describe the difficulties in the laboratory identification of this pathogen.
