Rights and Permissions

Opportunistic infections in the intensive care unit are quite common which can cause devastating disease in many hospitalized and immunocompromised patients. Chryseobacterium indologenes is one such microorganism which is an emerging cause of nosocomial infections. Many cases had been reported from its infections, but the treatment protocol for its management is still not established. We present two cases of C. indologenes infections which were hospital acquired. The pandrug-resistant nature of the bacteria and the associated mortality were uncommon with these two cases.
