Roseomonas is a recently proposed genus of pink-pigmented, non-fermentative, short gram-negative rod-bacteria which have been recognized as a cause of human infections. We report a case of bacteremia associated with Roseomonas mucosa isolated from a patient with a history of nodular goiter and multiple episodes of blood transfusion.

 

Key words: Roseomonas mucosa, myelodysplastic syndrome, case report.
