Özet

Raoultella planticola is rarely associated with clinical infection, and a limited number of pediatric cases have been reported. Herein we report a case of bacteremia presumptively secondary to bilateral conjunctivitis in an infant caused by R. planticola which was successfully treated with piperacillin-tazobactam. It should be kept in mind that R. planticola can be a pathogen in pediatric age groups. (C) 2017 The Authors.
