ABSTRACT

Chryseobacterium indologenes is a nonfermentative Gram negative bacillus that although widely distributed in nature is a rare pathogen in humans. Initially described in Taiwan and in 1993 in India, in a immunocompromised host it is becoming more common in hospital environments. They have been recovered from water systems and humid surfaces. Most infections have been detected in hospitalized patients with severe underlying diseases having indwelling devices and implants. Formerly known as Flavobacterium indologenes, it has been phenotypically and genotypically differentiated from other members of this group.[1,2] There is scarcity of data in the Indian literature regarding infections by Chryseobacterium species. Here we describe a polytrauma patient with skin and soft tissue infection with Chryseobacterium indologenes who was treated and discharged home.
