Corynebacterium diphtheriae is well known to cause pathogenicity in humans as well as animals but other species of genus Corynebacterium are considered Diphtheroids and disregarded as commensals. But these good bacteria can become bad whenever immunosuppression takes place. Few authors have reported a negative experience by not giving them due importance. Corynebacterium striatum is one such diphtheroid which was isolated in our institute from a case of non-healing ulcer. The timely isolation and appropriate antibiotic led to complete recovery of the individual.
