Rothia mucilaginosa (previously Stomatococcus mucilaginosus) is a Gram-positive coccus residing in the oral cavity and respiratory tract as a part of normal flora. In the recent years, it has been associated with opportunistic infections in immunocompromised patients. In this case report, we present a case of pneumonia due to R. mucilaginosa. The isolate was confirmed using matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry system.
