Abstract

Robinsoniella peoriensis is a gram-positive, spore-forming, anaerobic rod. In our study, we isolated R. peoriensis from an open fracture of the left distal tibia of a three-year-old male patient. Tissue anaerobic culture was positive for R. peoriensis. It was identified with both matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry and confirmed via 16S rRNA gene sequencing. The patient responded to ampicillin-sulbactam and amikacin antibiotic therapy. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing should be performed to guide the choice of treatment. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of R. peoriensis osteomyelitis in a pediatric patient and first report from Turkey.
