Abstract

Chryseobacterium species are a rare cause of human disease and are usually associated with indwelling devices or altered immune status. This is the first case to our knowledge, of Chryseobacterium indologenes bacteremia in a previously healthy infant. Chryseobacteria are pathogens resistant to the usual empiric treatments for neonatal or infantile septicemia.
