Dokdonella Koreensis Bacteremia: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
Dokdonella koreensis is a non-spore-forming, aerobic, Gram-negative bacillus that was initially isolated from soil. The pathogenicity of this organism in humans remains unclear. The authors report a case of successfully treated D koreensis bacteremia in a patient with a hematological malignancy who presented with a fever and palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia.
