Ochrobactrum anthropi is Gram-negative bacteria that cause infection in humans, particularly immunocompromised patients and those with indwelling central venous catheters. O. anthropi is unlikely to cause fulminant sepsis in infected patients. A few cases of late-onset neonatal sepsis have been reported in preterm infants with congenital anomalies. We hereby present the first published case of fulminant early-onset neonatal sepsis in a premature newborn.
