    Abstract

    Bloodstream infections with Granulicatella (previous Abiotrophia) elegans are rare. A few reported cases were associated with infective endocarditis. Three cases of bacteraemia with G. elegans in patients who were operated for acute abdominal diseases are described. Abdominal foci should be considered when G. elegans is recovered from blood.
