Özet

Infections caused by Stenotrophomonas maltophilia may be fatal in diseases such as leukaemia which causes immunodeficiency. Herein, we report a rare case of 8-year-old girl with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, who developed perianal cellulitis and pneumonia secondary to S. maltophilia bacteraemia while undergoing broad spectrum antimicrobial agents for neutropenic fever.
