Streptococcus constellatus (S.constellatus), normal commensal bacteria of the human oral cavity is known to be associated with abscess formation and/or bacteremias. This is an infrequently isolated organism from the blood culture of the patients and is considered pathogenic when isolated. Because of the increased usage and wide availability of newer automated methods and other technological advances, better isolation and identification of these organisms has been possible. We report a case of S.constellatus bacteremia associated with abscess in an 11-month-old child.
