Moraxella osleonsis (M.osleonsis ) is an organism that rarely presents with bacteremia in immunocompetent patients. We report a case of an immunocompetent 59-year-old male with a recent SARS-CoV-2 infection that developed M. osleonsis bacteremia. We believe that SARS-CoV-2 infection may have played a role in developing M. osleonsis bacteremia in this patient and may be one of the first reported cases of such bacteremia in a COVID-19 patient.
