Abstract: Streptobacillus moniliformis is one of the causes of rat bite fever. The clinical and microbiological diagnosis of this rare infectious disease is often quite problematic. Penicillin, in sufficiently high dosis, is the treatment of choice and leads to a prompt resolution of the infection, whereas lack of treatment leads to a 13% mortality rate. As far as we know, this paper reports the first human isolate in Belgium.
