Chromobacterium violaceum (CV) is a motile and facultative anaerobic gram-negative bacillus. It is a common inhabitant of soil and water in tropical and subtropical regions. It rarely causes invasive infection in humans and has a high fatality rate. We present a 2 year old boy who presented with ulcerated lesion over right lower chest wall and necrotic skin patch with bacteremia due to CV. He recovered completely with treatment.
