Abstract

Most human infections with Capnocytophaga canimorsus are caused by dog bites. However, even a mere exposure to a dog's saliva through an existing wound can cause serious infection, typically in immunocompromised persons. The case presented involves an elderly woman with septicemia caused by C canimorsus.
