Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is a non-fermenting, aerobic, gram-negative bacillus that shows multi-drug resistance and is an opportunistic and nosocomial pathogen. It causes infections like pneumonia, bacteremia, endocarditis, meningitis, bone and gastrointestinal infections, which may lead to septic shock. This study was undertaken to evaluate the clinical and microbiological profile of this emerging pathogen since not many studies about this organism have been done in India. This retrospective study was conducted at a tertiary care hospital of Karnataka, India for two years (2014-2015). Demographic and clinical data of patients was collected from medical records section and then analyzed using SPSS 11.0.
