Abstract

Cedecea are the new members of Enterobacteriacea. Because of their inherent resistance to some antibiotics, the clinical response could be unpredictable making management of Cedecea infection in immunocompromised patients challenging. We report a case of acute myeloid leukemia with central line-related Cedecea bacteremia.
