  • Abstract

Empedobacter falsenii is a rarely encountered gram-negative non-fermenting (NF) bacterium. It is most often misidentified due to limitations of conventional culture based identification methods and the true significance of its isolation remains obscure. However, in present times, the identification of NFs has become quick and reliable with the use of matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-off-light mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF). E. falsenii, which was formerly known as Wautersiella falsenii, is the only species of the genus. There are no definite guidelines for the antibiotic susceptibility testing and empirical therapy for this multidrug resistant agent. Till date in the world literature, only one case of urinary tract infection (UTI) by E. falsenii has been reported in a one-year-old child with pyelonephritis. Here, we report the first case of E. falsenii associated UTI from India which was identified using MALDI-TOF.
