Abstract

The most common cause of cellulitis is streptococci.1 Coagulase-negative staphylococci2 and gram-negative bacteria, such as Serratia spp., Proteus spp., and other Enterobacteriaceae may produce cellulitis in the immunocompromised patient.1 We report a case of Citrobacter diversus-induced cellulitis, resembling streptococcal infection, in a patient with multiple myeloma.
