We are reporting a case of PUO in a young male with no underlying co-morbities, which was managed as plasmodium malaria due to false positive card test initially but later found to be due to a gram negative bacteria Achromobacter denitrificans (A. denitrificans), which was sensitive to cephalosporin. The patient was treated with ceftriaxone and got cured. To our knowledge A. denitrificans bacteremia with sensitivity to cephalosporin’s in a immunocompetent person with no underlying illness, hospitalization or in person who has never underwent any medical procedure has never been described in medical literature before.
