Trueperella bernardiae is a Gram-positive coccobacilli and is a commensal on human skin. It is an opportunistic pathogen and has been known to cause infections in human beings ranging from mild septicemia to brain abscess in adult population. This pathogenic organism is unheard of in neonatal population. We report a case of early-onset T. bernardiae bacteremia in a preterm neonate who was treated successfully with ampicillin and gentamicin. This is the first case report of T. bernardiae infection in neonates. This case illustrates a rare cause of early-onset sepsis in neonates.
