We present a case of febrile neutropenia in a patient with acute myeloid leukemia caused by an uncommon bacterial species. The patient was treated with antibiotics for 14 days before being discharged. Pantoea agglomerans is a plant soil and water-dwelling agricultural organism. It is both a commensal and pathogen of animals and humans, according to earlier research. In conclusion, p. agglomerans should be considered a bacterial threat in cancer patients who are undergoing highly myelotoxic chemotherapy.
