Abstract
Raoultella ornithinolytica is a gram negative aerobic bacillus belonging in the family Enterobacteriaceae that is a known but extremely rare pathogen which causes infections in humans. We report on a newborn with urinary tract infection caused by Raoultella ornithinolytica. The present case is the first newborn patient with urinary tract infection and only the third newborn found infected with Raoultella ornithinolytica reported in the literature.
