Abstract

A 71-year-old mesothelioma patient developed pleuro-pericarditis and pleural empyema. Bacteriological examinations and serological identification proved group F Streptococcus in the pleural fluid. Anamnestic data suggested that the source of infection might have been the oral cavity after dental surgery.
