Abstract: Kocuria kristinae is a rare but mutlidrug resistant organism belonging to Micrococcaceae family. It is a gram positive coccus and usually a skin commensal, but, in immunocompromised and those with co-morbid conditions it often presents as fulminant infection. We isolated the organism from the sample of a chronic alcoholi with osteomyletis. The organism grew well on Maconkey and Blood Agar plates and responded well to teicoplanin.
