• Corynebacterium group D2 is a gram-positive bacillus easily identified in clinical microbiology laboratories. However, this organism is often disregarded as a skin and mucous contaminant. The Spanish literature has recently described Corynebacterium group D2 as a urinary pathogen in a specific patient population. We report a case of Corynebacterium group D2 infection to illustrate the potential pathogenicity and clinical presentation of infection due to this organism in the United States.
