ABSTRACT: There are few reports of invasive infections caused by Brevundimonas vesicularis. We report two cases of B vesicularis bacteremia confirmed by culture and 16S rRNA sequence analysis with highly variable sensitivity to broad-spectrum antibiotics. Initial empiric therapy with anti-pseudomonal antibiotics plus trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for hospital-acquired B vesicularis infections should be considered.
