Abstract Leclercia adecarboxylata infection is rarely reported in the context of human infections. In the scant cases reported in the literature, it usually involves individuals who are immunocompromised with infections of a polymicrobial nature. Recently, data have begun to accumulate suggesting that L. adecarboxylata is a pathogen associated with water environments. We review the literature regarding L. adecarboxylata infections and present a case of cellulitis and soft-tissue infection in the foot of a healthy surfer.
