Abstract

Chryseobacterium species are Gram-negative bacillus widely distributed in nature. It is a rare human pathogen that has been isolated from water systems and humid surfaces of the hospital environment. We report a rare case of Chryseobacterium bacteremia in an end-stage renal disease nursing home resident, that was diagnosed using multiplex PCR and was successfully treated with intravenous piperacillin-tazobactam combination.
