Roussoella percutanea is a novel opportunistic pathogen firstly identified in 2014. It is known to cause subcutaneous infection in immunosuppressed patients. We report on the first case of R. percutanea bursitis in a renal transplant patient. We provide new data about its identification, drug susceptibility, and treatment outcome. Here we demonstrate that R. percutanea is a potential human pathogen.
