Chryseobacterium indologenes is a Gram-negative, immobile, aerobic, non-fermentative, oxidase-positive bacillus. This agent is a rarely isolated multidrug-resistant nosocomial pathogen. It causes a wide range of infections such as meningitis, bacteremia, respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, surgical site infections, soft tissue infections, prosthesis, and catheter infections. In this article, a rare case of C. indolegenes surgical site infection following percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy in a patient treated for malnutrition is presented.
