>Diabetic foot infections are the most common serious diabetes-related complication posing significant socioeconomic burden on the health-care system. Diabetic foot microbiota consists of polymicrobial flora with predominance of Gram-negative aerobes and anaerobes. Here, we report a rare case of diabetic foot infection by Bacteroides pyogenes, an obligate Gram-negative anaerobic bacillus which is commonly encountered in polymicrobial animal bite wound infections.
