We report nine cases of Achromobacter xylosoxidans bacteremia diagnosed in patients with hematologic malignancies. There was not an obvious epidemiologic link between cases and the organism was not isolated from any source. Outcome was cure in all nine cases. In our experience, catheter removal is generally required for eradication of A. xylosoxidans.
