Chryseobacterium indologenes is a nonfastidious, oxidase-positive, gram-negative rod that does not ferment glucose. It is known to be associated with a variety of clinical infections. We report six cases of C. indologenes isolated from clinical specimens, which were seen at our institution over a 2-year period. These organisms were recovered from blood, pleural fluid, peritoneal fluid, bile, endotracheal aspirate, and sputum. We described clinical characteristics, treatment outcome, microbiological characteristics, and in vitro antibiotic susceptibility test. (Korean J Clin Microbiol 1999;2:101~104)
