A patient with cystic fibrosis became chronically colonised with an unusual non-fermenting Gram-negative rod that could be cultured on Burkholderia cepacia selective agar. Phenotypic characterisation by VITEK-2 suggested identification as Elizabethkingia meningoseptica, however 16S rRNA gene sequencing revealed it belonged to a putative novel species of genus Dyella. Thirty months after the initial detection, the patient produced a high level of precipitating antibodies against the bacterium.
