In children under 5 years of age, presenting to the paediatric emergency room with clinical and radiological findings of pneumonia, viridans streptococci were isolated in 10/33 positive haemocultures as the only microorganism. Viridans streptococci should therefore not be ruled out as a cause of pneumonia.
