Plesiomonas shigelloides is a gram-negative, oxidase-positive facultative anaerobe, very rarely encountered in clinical samples. Here we report a case of infective relapse of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) caused by this organism in a patient on immunosuppressive therapy. Plesiomonas shigelloides is known to be a causative agent of acute gastroenteritis in patients with certain common risk factors which is absent in our case. Through this case report, we intend to discover the role of P. shigelloides as a causative agent of relapse of IBD.
