Vagococcus lutrae belongs to the Vagococcus genus; it is possible to isolate vagococci from marine hosts, contaminated food and soil. To our knowledge, this is the first case of bloodstream infection with V. lutrae and only the second reported human infection in the literature. As in the first reported case of clinical infection with V. lutrae, this woman had several wounds. The clinical investigation showed no other foci for the bloodstream infection, so we hypothesize that the wounds were colonized, although they showed no signs of infection and skin swabs did not reveal V. lutrae.
