Abstract

Shewanella algae infections are rare in humans. Previously approximately 65 cases of S. algae causing human infection have been reported and most of them have association with direct contact with sea water. We report a case of primary S. algae soft tissue infection in a patient with diabetic nephropathy after prolonged stay in hospital, without prior exposure to sea water/sea food.
