Abstract
Spinal infections with Eikenella corrodens are rare. We report a unique case of infection caused by E. corrodens diagnosed more than two years after cervical surgery. All other published cases of spinal infections caused by E. corrodens were searched. Characteristics of this bacterium, its challenging diagnosis and therapy are discussed.
