The cancer is usually minimizing the immunity, which make the patients with cancers at risk for many microbial infections and even septicaemia. This study was done to identify and isolate aerobic bacterial septicaemic pathogens among cancer patients. This study was performed in Radiation and Isotopes national Centre of Khartoum Hospital (previously Alzarra) during the period of May to July 2013. Thirty two blood samples were collected from cancer patients suspected to septicemia. All samples were initially inoculated in brain heart infusion broth and diphasic brain heart infusion. The study showed that eleven (34%) of this samples were showed growth, while twenty one (66%) showed no growth. After subculture on Blood agar, MacConky agar and Chocolate agar, all isolated pathogens were subjected to essential bacteriological biochemical tests and identified as Staphylococcus aureus N= 9 (72.7%), Klebsiella pneumoniae N= 2 (18.2%), and Bacillus species N=1 (9.1%). Septicaemia in patients with cancer was mainly caused by Staphylococcus aureus and it commonly in patients using chemotherapy.
