Rahnella aquatilis infections are rare. We report the case of a 46-y-old African-American male with relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia who had R. aquatilis bacteremia after beginning reinduction chemotherapy. He was treated for 4 weeks with piperacillin-tazobactam and gentamicin. He recovered from the infection and had an allogenic bone marrow transplant a month later.
