Abstract

Introduction:

, a Gram‐negative non‐fermenting bacterium, is usually associated with neonatal meningitis and other infections, especially in immunocompromised patients. It is a potential nosocomial pathogen and is usually resistant to several commonly used antimicrobials.

Case presentation:

We here report a rare case of septicaemia caused by associated with peritonitis and choledocholithiasis. The patient succumbed in spite of diagnosis and institution of appropriate antibiotics.

Conclusion:

A prompt diagnosis of infection with is important so as to guide the institution of appropriate antibiotic treatment.
