An adult case of urinary tract
infection with Kingella kingae: a case report
Kingella kingae, though part of the normal upper respiratory tract and
genitourinary tract, is increasingly being recognized as an important human
pathogen. During the past decade, it has emerged as a significant pathogen in
the pediatric age group primarily causing bacteremia and osteoarticular
infections. Adult infection usually occurs in individuals who are severely
immunocompromised and most infections have taken the form of septicemia or
septic arthritis. Bacteremia due to K. kingae has been
reported as the immediate cause of death in patients with acquired
We present a microbiologically
confirmed urinary tract infection with K. kingae in an
immunocompetent 45-year-old adult woman with post-menopausal bleeding and with
a history of clots. Her urine was subjected to culture and sensitivity tests.
The isolated colonies were identified as K. kingae because of
their typical culture characteristics such as long incubation period required
for growth, beta-hemolysis, positive oxidase and negative catalase, urease
indole, nitrate and citrate tests. Penicillin G disc test was positive. They
were sensitive to all conventional antibiotics.
K. kingae infection is a rare occurrence in immunocompetent adults. Very
few cases of microbiologically confirmed infections have been reported so far.
The isolation of K. kingae from urine sample has rarely been
reported. K. kingae isolates are either missed or misinterpreted
by clinical microbiologists. Therefore, K. kingae deserves
recognition as a pathogen.
