Abstract

Brevundimonas vesicularis has rarely been isolated from clinical specimens. We describe a case of B. vesicularis bacteremia in the setting of acute biliary pancreatitis. Though rare, it can be effectively treated with appropriate antibiotics and should be in the differential diagnosis of gram-negative bacteremia.
