Abstract:

Oxidase positive, non-fermenting, Gram negative bacilli are invariably incorrectly identified as Pseudomonas species in conventional culture methods often missing out isolates of Ochrobactrum anthropi. We report here the clinical and microbiological characteristics of this rare pathogen from a case of neonatal sepsis. Rapid isolation and correct identification followed by appropriate antimicrobial therapy was the key to favourable clinical outcome.
