Elizabethkingia meningoseptica is an unusual, highly resistant, gram- negative bacillus. While E. meningoseptica-associated meningitis outbreaks have been well-documented in hospital neonatal wards and among immunocompromised adults, reports describing this microorganism in critically ill children are scarce. The purpose of this report was to describe a case of a 3 year-old girl who developed pneumonia caused by E. meningoseptica in the setting of previous use of broad-spectrum antibiotics and to review the pediatric literature regarding this pathogen.
