A 93-year-old male was hospitalized due to complicated urinary tract infection. Delftia acidovorans was isolated from patient's blood and urine culture. The blood and urine strains were identical and confirmed by pulse field gel electrophoresis. Symptoms resolved after specific antibiotic therapy with intravenous administration with imipenem 500 mg every 6 hours. D acidovorans is an environment microorganism and rarely caused human infections. So far as we know, this is the first report of ascending urinary tract infection associated with D acidovorans bacteremia in Taiwan.
