Campylobacter jejuni bacteremia is rare. We herein report a case of C. jejuni bacteremia in a patient with multiple risk factors, including diabetes mellitus, liver cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. The presentation was nonspecific. Diagnosis was made only after positive blood culture which took 5 days. The organism was resistant to several antibiotics; however, treatment with azithromycin was associated with successful outcome.
