We grew a single crystal of an antiferromagnetic CeRhGe and studied the electronic state by measuring the electrical resistivity, magnetic susceptibility, magnetization and neutron scattering. The magnetic susceptibility is found to be highly anisotropic, reflecting the orthorhombic crystal structure. The antiferromagnetic structure is, however, not simple, as expected from the results of the susceptibility. The resistivity peaks at the Néel temperature, which was observed under pressure, is pronounced with increasing pressure up to 1.3-1.5 GPa.
