Cedecea spp. represent a new member of the Enterobacteriaceae family, and although they are commonly described, they have rarely been reported as causes of invasive infection. The species' inherent resistance to antibiotics makes their management extremely challenging, especially in the context of immunocompromise when infections occur. We hereby report a rare case of Cedecea davisae bacteraemia in a patient with stage IV sigmoid colon cancer followed by a brief review of the literature.
