Abstract

Four patients had Eikenella corrodens infections involving the head and neck in different ways. The organism is discussed as a pathogen in mixed infections and as the predominant organism in other processes. As part of the resident microflora of mucous membrane surfaces, it is an important potential pathogen in a number of otolaryngologic clinical settings. Careful microbiological culturing and susceptibility testing reveal the causative organism and guide the antibiotic therapy.
