Weeksella virosa was previously included in group II f of CDC. We here present the Microbiological characteristics of the isolate from a case of neonatal sepsis at our center. The organism is a non-fermenter growing only on blood agar and not on Mac Conkey agar, oxidase and catalase positive, and negative for several other bio-chemical tests, except for indole with Ehrlich’s reagent. The isolate in the present case study was sensitive to aminoglycosides and β- lactams, and resistant to quinolones and carbapenems. [Int J Res Med Sci 2013; 1(3.000): 294-295]
