Özet

Sepsis-related mortality and morbidity are the leading issues that neonatal intensive care units struggle with worldwide. We report a preterm infant with septic shock and intractable metabolic acidosis whose postmortem microbiologic examination revealed Chryseobacterium meningosepticum meningitis. We would like to alert clinicians about this uncommon sepsis agent, and to call into question the treatment modalities for metabolic acidosis.
