The article discusses chryseobacterium indologenes, which was first isolated from the tracheal aspirate of a patient with ventilator-associated pneumonia in 1993. It mentions the risk factors for the pathogen which include underlying medical illness and presence of indwelling intravascular devices. It concludes that the bacillus should be included in the list of agents causing severe infections in newborn babies in the presence of invasive equipment or in those with immunodeficiency.
