Ochrobactrum intermedium [corrected] infection is rare in humans and is generally associated with immunocompromised hosts with indwelling foreign bodies. We report a case of pelvic abscess with O. intermedium [corrected] after a routine appendectomy in an immunocompetent patient and review the literature on O. intermedium [corrected] infection in patients with normal immune function.
