Abstract

Clostridium cadaveris, usually considered a non‐pathogen, was isolated from blood cultures of two febrile patients with cancer. The bacteremias appeared to have originated from the abdomen. This organism has not been previously reported as the etiological agent in this setting. © 1993 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
