Leclercia adecarboxylata is a Gram-negative rod of the Enterobacteriaceae family. It has been first described by Leclerc in 1962 and has been rarely isolated in the context of human infections in single cases or small case reports. We describe a case of a polymicrobial infection, including Leclercia adecarboxylata, in an immunocompromised man with positive blood cultures and a phlebitis of the right arm.
