Abstract
Dysgonic fermenter 3 (DF-3)-associated bacteremia occurred in a febrile pat ient with acute myelocytic leukemia during aplasia. Another DF-3 isolate, i dentical bg ribotyping, was grown 10 weeks later from stool collected in th e absence of diarrhea. This is the first case in which DF-3 was isolated fr om blood and stool specimens from the same patient.
