Resumo

Rhizobium radiobacter is an uncommon agent of infection and has been associated with indwelling intravascular devices such as catheter in immunocompromised patients. Here, we report a case of R. radiobacter recovered from blood cultures in stem cell transplantation in a pediatric patient and present an extensive characterization of its antimicrobial susceptibility profile. The isolate presented low MICs to many antimicrobial agents, but high MICs to ceftazidime, piperacillin-tazobactam, aztreonam, and fosfomycin.
