Actinobaculum schaalii is a Gram-positive coccoid rod that causes various infections in humans and is easily overlooked in cultures. A. schaalii has long been thought to be of low prevalence and limited invasive potential, causing benign cystitis in elderly patients with underlying urological conditions. Here, we report the first case of epididymitis caused by this bacterium.
