Achromobacter xylosoxidans,previously called Alcaligenes xylosoxidansis an oxidase positive, motile bacillifound predominantly in polluted aquatic sources.Irrespective of the age group, it primarily causes opportunistic infection in certain conditions and hospital acquired infection in certain conditions.Being a rare causative agent, it has been notifiedto cause prosthetic valve endocarditis, peritonitis, skin and soft tissue infection, hepatobiliaryinfections, bacteremia (3), otitismedia (6), pneumonia, urinary tract infections, meningitis andcorneal ulcers particularlyinimmunosuppressed patients.Infection in an immunologically competent patient is quite rare and only limited studies are available regarding its prevalence.Urinary tract infection secondary to achromobacter xylosoxidans as well as in an immunocompetent adult is quite uncommon. In our study, wedealt with a case of urinary tract infection (2) inan immunocompetent young male patient caused by A. xylosoxidans, who got admitted, treated with susceptible antibiotics, recovered and discharged back home with no specific complaints.
