Short summary
Non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) is here described for the first time as responsible for an invasive infection involving blood, vertebral and joint infection in a 79-year-old woman. It was triggered by an asymptomatic sinus condition. Surgical drainage and antibiotic therapy allowed recovery. This case shows that a full cartography of NTHi infection is unavoidable and may reveal unknown dissemination mechanisms.
