Members of the Raoultella genus were formerly considered to be Klebsiella species until they were differentiated based on phylogenetic Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) analysis.1 Since then, Raoultella ornithinolytica has been sparsely implicated in clinically-apparent disease, though more case reports are appearing as of late. Here we report the first documented instance of R. ornithinolytica bacteremia in a patient with new acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
