AbstractWe report the first case of surgical site abscess caused by Lactobacillus fermentum from a 53-year-old woman with squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus after transthoracic esophagectomy and neoadjuvant chemoirradiation. 16S rRNA gene sequencing is a useful tool to better characterize the epidemiology and clinical significance of L. fermentum. © 2007 Elsevier Inc.
