Micro­coc­cus ­luteus was repeat­ed­ly iso­lat­ed in ­blood cul­tures dur­ing a pro­longed fever­ish syn­drome in a ­patient who pre­sent­ed ­with mul­ti­ple hepat­ic abscess­es as ­well. In con­trast to the lit­er­a­ture, ­this ­case is not relat­ed to pros­thet­ic devic­es; an untreat­ed ­limb ­wound may ­have ­been the ­site of micro­bi­al ­entry.
