    Abstract

    We report the first case of Segniliparus rotundus pneumonia in an adult with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis. All isolates were identified as S. rotundus by 16S rRNA gene sequencing and rpoB PCR-restriction analysis. Antibiotic therapy with clarithromycin and ciprofloxacin for 2 months improved the patient's condition and achieved successful sputum conversion.
