Abstract

We report a case of catheter-related bloodstream infection by Tsukamurella inchonensis, identified using 16S rRNA gene sequencing, in a patient with myelofibrosis who underwent a bone marrow transplant.

Tsukamurella species infections are rare. To our knowledge, this is the first case of T. inchonensis bloodstream infection in an immunocompromised patient.
