Chromobacterium violaceum is a Gram-negative, facultative anaerobe. It is a common inhabitant of soil and water. It causes localised skin infection or localised lymphadenitis following contact with stagnant water or soil and then progresses to fulminant septicaemia with necrotising metastatic lesions. A three day-old girl presented with fever and multiple abscesses all over her body. On blood culture, C. violaceum was isolated. She had a history of consumption of holy water three days after birth. She was treated with Piperacillin-Tazobactam, Amikacin and Ciprofloxacin.
