Chryseobacterium indologenes, a non-fermentative Gram-negative bacilli distributed widely in nature, is an emerging nosocomial pathogen, inherently resistant to a wide range of antibiotics. There is limited number of C. indologenes infections reported from India. We report a case of C. indologenes associated pneumonia in a three-month-old infant with congenital heart disease. This case highlights the importance of prompt diagnostic workup and targeted antibiotic therapy for its effective management.
