Neonatal septicemia acquired by vertical transmission of Pasteurella multocida is very rare. The authors report a case of Pasteurella multocida septicemia in a 2-day-old male infant. His mother had a history of prolonged premature rupture of membranes and subsequently developed fever. The patient had fever and lethargy at 36 hours of age, then developed severe pneumonia, sepsis, persistent pulmonary hypertension, renal failure and liver failure. Although the appropriate antibiotics were given, he continued to deteriorate and eventually died.
