We describe 1 neonate and 3 infants with bacteremia secondary to rotavirus gastroenteritis. All had a typical course of an increase in temperature several days after admission. The causative organisms were Enterobacter cloacae and Klebsiella pneumoniae, both normal commensals of the small intestine. Pediatricians should be aware of this complication.
