Chromobacterium violaceum is a rare pathogen that causes fatal infections in humans. Prompt diagnosis and specific treatment is important because infections caused by C. violaceum have a propensity to develop into fatal septicaemia unless appropriately treated. Here, we report a case of catheter-related blood stream infection caused by C. violaceum in a 55-year-old diabetic female patient.
