Shalini Upadhyay, Tanisha Bharara, Anita Chakravarti

Abstract: Human infection due to Sphingomonas paucimobilis (S. paucimobilis) was first reported in 1979 and it was then named Pseudomonas paucimobilis. In 1990, it was renamed as S. paucimobilis based on the phylogenetic data. S. paucimobilis can cause a variety of infections from mild to lethal illness in both healthy and immunocompromised hosts. Early identification such unusual pathogen and optimization of the treatment according to the sensitivity pattern can avoid adverse outcome. We report a case of S. paucimobilis bacteraemia in a neonate.
