Abstract

We have described 15 cases of infection due to Chryseomonas luteola and Flavimonas oryzihabitans isolated between May 1990 and May 1994. These infections were often associated with the presence of a foreign body, especially central venous access and joint prosthesis. The high frequency of isolating C. luteola and F. oryzihabitans probably expresses the awareness of the clinicians and the laboratory to the importance of these bacteria, especially in patients with the presence of a foreign material.
