Abstract

 

Infections due to Chryseobacterium indologenes (C. indologenes) are rare and generally associated with immunosupression and indwelling catheters. We report a recurrent port infection caused by C. indologenes. In the first bacteremia episode we did not remove the port and only applied antibiotherapy. However, the patient presented with bacteremia with the same bacteria and successfully treated with antibiotherapy and removal of the port.
