Corynebacterium aquaticum, an environmental organism associated with fresh water, has very seldom proved to be a cause of infection, although it has increasingly been isolated from clinical specimens. This report describes an unusual case of bacteremia occurring in an HIV-infected patient, complicated by septic shock and secondary to an epididimo-orchitis. Combination therapy of levofloxacin and metronidazole was used successfully.
