Abstract:

Chromobacterium violaceum is a rare pathogen that causes potentially fatal infections in human beings. It is a normal inhabitant of soil and stagnant water of the tropical and subtropical areas. Chromobacterium violaceum infection usually occurs after broken skin exposed to contaminated soil or water. The organism is mostly resistant to pencillins and cephalosporins and sensitive to fluoroquinolones and aminoglycosides. Rapid progression to sepsis with metastatic abscesses is the striking feature of C. violaceum infection .High mortality rates associated with these infections necessitates prompt diagnosis and appropriate antimicrobial therapy. Here the present study reports a case of C. violaceum septicemia in a 4 ½ years old male child.


Keywords: Sepsis, Chromobacterium violaceum. Pencillins and Cephalosporins
