Comamonas testosteroni is an uncommon isolate in the clinical laboratory as a human pathogen. C. testosteroni most commonly emerges in abdominal pathologies especially in perforated appendicitis. In Turkey we report first time a case of bacteremia due to this organism, in a 22-year-old man with perforated acute appendicitis. The organism was shown to be susceptible to routine antibiotics so it was easily eliminated even after having caused a bacteremia. © 2007 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest.
