Abstract
Background:
Burkholderia cepacia complex consists of 24 species of microorganisms that include B. cepacia, B. multivorans, B. cenocepacia, B. vietnamiensis, B. ambifaria, and many more. It is a ubiquitous microorganism found in the soil and aquatic milieu. The most common infections caused by these isolates include bacteremia, pneumonia, genital tract infections, and surgical wound infections. Their potential to cause nosocomial outbreaks in wards of immunocompromised patients is well known.
Case Description:
In this case report, we describe two cases of community-acquired B. vietnamese bacteremia in patients suffering from B-cell acute lymphocytic leukemia and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern to guide the treatment of these individuals.
Conclusion:
The identification of rare opportunistic pathogens like Burkholderia vietnamese and adequate treatment in the pandemic-ridden era is the need of the hour due to a rise in immunocompromised conditions owing to the rigorous use of antimicrobials and steroids.

Key words: Burkholderia cepacia complex (BCC), Hematological malignancy, Septicemia, Bacteremia, Burkholderia vietnamese
