Abstract

Raoultella planticola (R. planticola) is an abundant environmental bacterium that rarely infects humans. There is only one known case of R. planticola causing a urinary tract infection (UTI) in a pediatric patient. This is a second case of R. planticola potentially causing a symptomatic UTI in a 2-month-old female child with no known medical problems.
