Capnocytophaga sputigena is a capnophilic gram-negative bacillus normally
residing intra-orally in humans, and may be associated with opportunistic infections in the
immunocompromised. A case of early-onset neonatal sepsis is described, which has only rarely been reported as a cause of premature birth and neonatal septicaemia.
