Abstract

Rothia dentocariosa, a gram-positive coccoid- to rod-shaped bacterium with irregular morphology, is a rare cause of bacteremia in patients without endocarditis. We report the first case of R. dentocariosa septicemia without endocarditis, which occurred in a neonatal infant with meconium aspiration syndrome.
