Abstract Ochrobactrum anthropi is an emerging pathogen in immunocompromised patients, with the majority of human cases being central venous catheter-related infections. In contrast, O. anthropi-related biliary sepsis is much rare. Herein we report the clinical and microbiological characteristics of O. anthropi-related biliary sepsis in order to increase awareness of the potential role of O. anthropi in this infection. Further extensive epidemiologic studies should be carried out to ascertain the etiologic association between O. anthropi and biliary sepsis and to identify potential hosts and routes of transmission.
