Abstract

Pasteurella spp. is a natural habitant of the oral flora and digestive tract of various domestic animals. There are several species of Pasteurella which can cause disease in humans. The most common species is Pmultocida, generally associated with an animal bite. The infection that evolves is usually constricted to the area of the bite. Systemic forms of infection are rare and were described in patients with underlying diseases. The authors would like to report on a case of a healthy 21-month-old child diagnosed with Pasteurella canis bacteremia after exposure to rabbit secretions. To our knowledge, this is the first report of bacteremia which was caused by Pasteurella canis.
