Abstract Vibrio cholerae sepsis is infrequent, especially in neonates although sporadic cases have been reported in older patients. We report the case of a neonate who was admitted to the intensive care unit for hypovolemic shock secondary to diarrhea caused by V. cholerae that developed into bacteremia. The predisposing factors were low socioeconomic status, home delivery, delayed presentation at the health center, and active maternal gastrointestinal infection with V. cholerae. The organism identified in blood and feces culture was identified as V. cholerae 0 -1, biotype Thor, serotype Ogawa, which correlated with the clinical presentation.
