Campylobacter coli rarely causes bacteremia or extraintestinal infection. We report herein a case of agammaglobulinemia in which cellulitis associated with C. coli bacteremia relapsed after a disease-free interval of >5 years. Pulsed field gel electrophoresis revealed that the organisms in this patient were genetically identical, suggesting a latent C. coli infection.
