Brevundimonas vesicularis is a non-fermentative, oxidase and catalase positive, gram negative aerobic bacillus. It is an opportunistic pathogenic bacteria that causes nosocomial infections, especially in immunosuppressive patients. The number of cases associated with this agent is limited in the literature and its isolation from cases of bacteremia, neonatal sepsis, endocarditis, meningitis and peritonitis has been reported. Despite the fact that the studies indicated varying levels of in vitro antibiotic susceptibility of Brevundimonas vesicularis, it is generally susceptible to antipseudomonal penicillins, aminoglycosides and carbapenem type antibiotics.

In this case report, Brevundimonas vesicularis, a rare microorganism isolated from tracheal aspirate sample of a newborn hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit and dependent on mechanical ventilator due to respiratory failure, and its antibiotic susceptibility status were presented.
