Abstract

Abstract: Streptococcus pyogenes has only rarely been reported as a cause of lung abscesses, usually as a complication of pneumonia. We present a case of S. pyogenes bacteremia and lung abscess in a woman infected with the human immunodeficiency virus, with no radiographic evidence of pneumonia, and review the literature.
