Pantoea agglomerans is a plant pathogen and an unusual cause of human disease typically associated with thorn prick injuries or contaminated parenteral fluids. In the neonate, P. agglomerans has been reported to cause bacteremia or sepsis 17 times previously. In most of these cases, the source of infection has been contaminated parenteral nutrition or has been associated with indwelling catheters. We present a rare case of P. agglomerans bacteremia in a 35-week-female born via vaginal delivery complicated by prolonged rupture of membranes and chorioamnionitis. English language literature on the subject is also reviewed.
