INTRODUCTION: Empyema is often caused by Streptococcus pneumonia as well as Staphylococcus aureus and a variety of gram-negative organisms and anaerobes. However, to the best of our knowledge, Streptococcus gordonii has not yet been reported as a causative agent for empyema. We describe a case of a 65-year-old man who was found to have empyema and splenic abscess due to S. gordonii.
