Abstract:Delftia acidovorans, previously known as Comamonas acidovorans is an aerobic, non-fermentative, Gram negative rod. We report a case of 2 day old male baby, delivered preterm and admitted to NICU with respiratory distress and shock. Umbilical Venous Tip culture grew Delftia acidovorans. It was sensitive to Amikacin, Gentamicin, Tobramycin, Piperacillin –Tazobactum, Imipenem, Meropenem. Patient was treated with meropenem, teicoplanin and fluconazole while awaiting reports for blood culture and UVL tip culture. Baby became afebrile and later was discharged. Delftia acidovorans is an unusual organism which has been isolated from cases of line related sepsis. Very few cases have been reported from India. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report from North India.
