Chryseobacterium indologenes (C. indologenes) is nonmotile, oxidase-, and indole-positive gram-negative aerobic bacillus. Immunosuppression, comorbidities, use of broad-spectrum antibiotics are known risk factors for C. indologenes-related infections. We report a neutropenic fever caused by C. indologenes in a 16-month-old boy who was treated due to the neuroblastoma. According to the antimicrobial susceptibility test result, he was treated with cephaperazone/sulbactam.
