A recent fatal case of Capnocytophaga canimorsus in a 63-year-old, immunocompetent German man led me to do this reminder video on this potentially lethal bacterium.

In the video, I discuss the typical patient that becomes infected with Capnocytophaga, signs and symptoms and transmission.

I also look at the above recent case in a paper published in September and the clinical implications of the report.
