Trueperella bernardiae (T.bernardiae) is a gram-positive curved rod that is considered an uncommon pathogen involved in few infections. The true incidence of infections with this bacterium, and the clinical implications, remain unknown. We report 2 cases of wound infections in 2 patients who underwent different surgical procedures, although in the second case the microorganism was isolated in mixed culture. Culture of wound secretions resulted in isolation of T. bernardiae. Treatment was performed and resolution of the infections was documented.
