Abstract

Moraxella osloensis is an aerobic, gram-negative coccobacillus infrequently isolated from clinical specimens. There is little published related to risk factors and treatment of Moraxella osloensis infections in the paediatric population. We report the first case of Moraxella bacteremia in a preterm newborn infant successfully treated and a review of bacteremia cases in children.
