We present an interesting case of a patient who developed an epidural abscess caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis. This is the first report in the medical literature of a spinal epidural abscess associated with this organism. Diagnosis of S. moniliformis infection requires a high degree of suspicion, and a delay may be inevitable when a relevant clinical history is lacking.
