Kluyvera species are described infrequently in association with clinically significant infections, and infections caused by these gram negative rods are rare in children. The spectrum of disease due to Kluyvera infection in children includes urinary tract infections, enteritis, soft tissue infections, sepsis, central venous catheter infections and peritonitis. The authors report a case of Kluyvera ascorbata urinary tract infection in a 3-month-old female baby, and they review the literature on Kluyvera infections in children.
