Campylobacter upsaliensis is an enteropathogenic bacterium in animals, and is also rarely isolated from humans, where it can cause enteritis and bacteremia. This report describes the first case of isolation of C. upsaliensis from an infected giant hepatic cyst. This bacterium could not be cultured from abscess punctuate in a usual Campylobacter-selection medium (charcoal cefoperazone deoxycholate agar medium), because of high concentration of cefoperazone as a selection agent. It could not identified by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrum. Rather, it was identified as C. upsaliensis by whole genome sequencing, including by multilocus sequence typing.
