  We present a case in which a patient initially came to the emergency department (ED) with influenza-like symptoms. The patient was incidentally found to have Alloiococcus otitis (A. otitis) grown from a blood culture. She was called back into the ED approximately a week later due to positive blood cultures. At this follow-up visit, although her work-up was unremarkable, antibiotics were administered based on the blood culture results. We believe translocation from the middle ear into the blood stream was the proposed mechanism of inoculation which is also an interesting and unusual presentation. This case should raise awareness about different means of inoculation as well as this unusual organism that caused the patient to be bacteremic.
