Chryseobacterium indologenes is a rare human pathogen. It is an emerging species, least frequently reported from pediatric age group and known to cause pneumonia, bacteremia, and meningitis. The inherent resistant of one of the species to commonly prescribed broad-spectrum antibiotics makes it formidable challenge in the hospital settings. We report the first case of C. indologenes bacteremia from Pakistan, diagnosed in a preterm newborn in an intensive care setting.
