Rothia aeria caused a necrotic lymphadenitis and neck abscess in a patient with CGD. This infection was aggressive, crossed tissue planes, required two surgeries, as well as prolonged antibiotics for complete resolution. Rothia aeria is a rare pathogen that can be added to the spectrum of agents causing disease in CGD, a finding that further reinforces the importance of microbiologic identification of infections in this patient population.
