Özet

Chryseobacterium indologenes was isolated from blood samples from a 5- month- old infant with bloodstream infection. Environmental sampling was performed. Molecular typing with arbitrarily primed polymerase chain reaction demonstrated the cross- contamination of commercial distillate water. The infant was infected by this water as a result of medical assistance received during hospitalization.
