Abstract

A man with AIDS developed appendicitis and bacteremia caused by Group A streptococcus, neither of which is considered an opportunistic infection. Group A streptococcus is rarely implicated in appendicitis in children and has not previously been reported in an adult. Immunodeficiency might have predisposed the patient to this unusual infection.
