Abstract

Kerstersia gyiorum is infrequently associated with human infection. We report the isolation of Kerstersia gyiorum from two patients: the first, a patient with chronic ear infections, and the second, a patient with a chronic leg wound. Both isolates were resistant to ciprofloxacin, which has not been previously reported.
