In this paper, we report our isolation of Elizabethkingia meningoseptica as a rare pathogen from the tracheal aspirate culture of a pediatric patient diagnosed with biliary atresia type 2 whose general condition had been deteriorating while under follow-up in our intensive care unit. Following the isolation, her condition improved after her treatment was modified in accordance with the related antimicrobial susceptibility test results. 

Bu yazıda yoğun bakım ünitesinde takip edilirken genel durumu kötüleşen, biliyer atrezi tip 2 tanılı çocuk hastanın trakeal aspirat kültüründen Elizabethkingia meningoseptica izole edilmesi anlatılmıştır. Hastanın, bakteri izolasyonu sonrasında antimikrobiyal duyarlılık sonucuna göre tedavisi değiştirilmiş ve genel durumu düzelmiştir.
