Abstract The aim of this study was to evaluate the absolute risk for children younger than 4 years of age with asymptomatic oropharyngeal carriage of Kingella kingae to sustain an osteoarticular infection. The rate of K. kingae carriage in the oropharyngeal mucosa was 9% among healthy children, and the risk for an asymptomatic carrier to develop an osteoarticular infection due to K. Kingae was estimated to be lower than 1%.
