ABSTRACT

We present an extremely rare case of Acinetobacter species isolated from a urine sample of45-year-old male. Acinetobacter junii is the newly emerging non-Acinetobacter baumanii rarely reported as a human pathogen. In addition, few cases had been reported in the literature with variable presentation and underlying pathology. We report a unique case of Acinetobacter junii in a patient with no underlying risk factors identified. Our case illustrates an unusual scenario where Acenitobacter junii spp isolates have been grown in urine culture with no underlying renal pathology or any long-term use of antimicrobial drugs or malignancy.  J Microbiol Infect Dis 2022; 12(3):136-138.
