Abstract: Streptomyces species, belonging to the order Actinomycetales, are ubiquitous in the environment but are rarely known to cause invasive infection in humans. We describe the case of a 74-year-old man who had Streptomyces bacteremia presumably originating from a dental abscess and review the 8 previously reported cases of bacteremic Streptomyces infections.
