Abstract

Patients undergoing high-dose chemotherapy for cancer are at a high risk of infections caused by unusual microorganisms. Previous chemotherapy, use of indwelling catheters and prior antibiotic treatment are common predisposing factors. We present a case of septicaemia due to a rare non-fermentative bacillus, CDC group IV c-2, found in the blood and venous catheter from a patient with a testicular germ cell tumour undergoing high-dose consolidation chemotherapy.
