In the nonneutropenic host, bacteremia due to Clostridium tertium is rare and of unclear significance. We describe a patient in whom presentation with Clostridium tertium bacteremia was the harbinger of Crohn's disease. In order to understand the significance of C. tertium bacteremia in neutropenic and nonneutropenic hosts, we review all 32 cases of C. tertium bacteremia that occurred at Duke University Medical Center from 1992 to 1999.
