We described the first case of pneumonia, pericarditis and meningitis due to Streptococcus acidominimus, who had no underlying disease. The organism is very rarely obtained in clinical bacteriology. The identifying characteristics of this isolate were discussed. There are no reports in which this organism caused such complicated human infection as this case in the English literature.
