Comamonas testosteroni, previously known as Pseudomonas testosterone, is an aerobic, motile, nonspore forming and gram-negative organism. It rarely infects humans and commonly can live in environments such as soil, water, plants, and animals. In addition to this, it can also survive for a long time in hospital environments. The microorganism infections are often treated in humans, and thus, mortality is rare. Up to today, among all cases in the literature, only five died owing to underlying diseases. Here we present a case of a 10-year-old male patient with cerebral palsy who was positive of Comamonas testosteroni in the tracheal aspirate culture. The patient died on the 50th day of the hospitalization because of in the fact that the prognosis of patients was extremely bad. In the medical literature, the patient is the second case of pneumonia.
