Background: Elizabethkingia meningoseptica is a ubiquitous organism rarely associated with human diseases,
but its association especially among hospitalized premature neonates and immunocompromised individuals are not so
Case: We report two cases of neonatal bacteraemia and meningitis among low birth weight premature neonates admitted in
neonatal intensive care units (NICU) by E. meningoseptica, a high alert organism associated with such conditions.
Conclusions: E. meningoseptica, a high alert organism associated with meningitis among premature underweight neonates.
High degree of resistant to most of the broad-spectrum antibiotics makes its management a challenging task. A good
communication between the clinician and the microbiologist becomes very important for the proper management of the
