    ABSTRACT:
    Streptococcus suis is a major bacterial pathogen in swine worldwide. Historically, cases in humans have occurred sporadically, mostly in Asia. However, an outbreak in China involved 215 human cases and 39 deaths. Only 3 human cases of S. suis disease were documented in the United States before 2011: 2 domestically acquired cases in New York and Hawaii, and 1 case in a person in California who was probably exposed in the Philippines. We describe a case of S. suis disease in a swine worker in Minnesota, USA.
