Abstract

Introduction Aerococccus urinae (AU) is a pathogen mainly identified in male urinary tract infections and responsible for bacteremia and endocarditis. To the best of our knowledge, there are only v fi e patients with osteomyelitis due to AU described in the literature. All of them had urinary tract disease or systemic conditions such as diabetes, and two were associated with an endocarditis. Case report We described the first case of isolated spondylodiscitis without general or local predisposing condition, excepted age > 65 years. Keywords Spondylodiscitis · Aerococcus urinae · Urinary tract infection · Bacteremia Introduction magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine revealed inflammatory lesions of L2 and L3 vertebrae in low T1 and An 81-year-old man was admitted to the emergency room for bright T2, with an enhancement after gadolinium injection an acute low back pain, evolving for 3 days. His past medi- (Fig. 1) and minor signs of bone-marrow edema of L4–L5 cal history included a Sjögren’s disease and chronic lumbar vertebrae, without any collection.
