Abstract

Pneumococci are an unusual cause of cutaneous and intra-abdominal infections. Most patients who develop these types of pneumococcal infections have a predisposing medical condition. We report a case of intra-abdominal and cutaneous abscesses due to pneumococci that developed after months of similar cutaneous lesions in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis.
