Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus is related with bacteriemia and extraintestinal system infections at immunodeficient patients. Bacteriemia may cause systemic complications like septic abortus, septic arthritis, abscess, menengitidis, endocarditis, micotic aneurisym, trombophlebitis, peritonitis and salphengitis. In this case report, a 92 years old male patient with secondary chronic renal failure due to chronic pylenophritis developed bacteriemia possibly after a gastrointestinal infection caused by Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus and importance of Gram stain at laboratory diagnosis by blood cultures were discussed. Antibacterial susceptibility of Campylobacter fetus subsp. fetus isolated from blood culture was determined using E-Test and was found resistant to piperacillin and piperacillin/tazobactam and sensitive to ampicilline, cephepime, imipenem, meropenem, klaritromicin, levofloxacin, azithromycine, erythromycin, gentamicin and ciprofloxacin. 2x200 mg of ciprofloxacin was used for the treatment of the patient.
