    Abstract

    Infections associated with Leifsonia aquatica are particularly uncommon. We describe a central venous catheter-associated L. aquatica bacteremia in a hemodialysis-dependent patient. A review of the literature revealed only 1 other case report involving 10 hemodialysis patients with documented L. aquatica bacteremia.
