Abstract We describe a patient with a non-0:1, non-0:139 Vibrio cholerae septicemia associated with ecythema gangrenosa-like skin lesions. The patient acquired the infection in Puerto Rico. Given the high fatality rate, it is important for the medical community to consider the diagnosis in high risk patients with exposures in Puerto Rico tropical waters.
