Comamonas testosteroni Blood Stream Infection in A Patient with End-stage Renal Failure on Hemodialysis

We report for the first time from Jordan and probably Arab countries a very rare case of Comamonas testosteroni causing blood stream infection in a Sudanese patient with renal failure on hemodialysis whom was waiting for a living-related renal transplant. He was successfully treated with cefepime and had his transplant ten days into his treatment. Post-transplant he did well and was discharged home.
