Abstract

Campylobacter bacteremia is rarely encountered, probably due to the fastidious nature of the organism. Moreover, it could be transient in nature, especially in immunocompetent individuals, but life-threatening in immunocompromised patients. We report a case of probable transient bacteremia in a recently diagnosed case Cirrhosis of Liver due to Autoimmune hepatitis with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis.

Keywords: Campylobacter, Bacteremia, Immunocompromised.
