Abstract

Kingella kingae can cause invasive pediatric infections and outbreaks of osteomyelitis/septic arthritis in daycare facilities have been described. This is the first reported public health investigation prompted by a case of K. kingae endocarditis in an infant attending a daycare facility. A concurrent case of osteomyelitis was identified. Screening of daycare contacts revealed a low rate of colonization before antibiotic prophylaxis.
