Gram-negative bacilli of the genus Aeromonas are widespread in aquatic environments and can be responsible for human infections. Although Aeromonas extraintestinal and systemic infections have been reported with growing frequency in recent years, Aeromonas septicaemia remains an uncommon finding, often associated with serious underlying disease and predominantly related to the species Aeromonas hydrophila, Aeromonas veronii biovar sobria and Aeromonas caviae.

Abstract

Gram-negative bacilli of the genus Aeromonas are widespread in aquatic environments and can be responsible for human infections. Although Aeromonas extraintestinal and systemic infections have been reported with growing frequency in recent years, Aeromonas septicaemia remains an uncommon finding, often associated with serious underlying disease and predominantly related to the species Aeromonas hydrophila, Aeromonas veronii biovar sobria and Aeromonas caviae. Here, a case of A. veronii biovar veronii septicaemia and acute suppurative cholangitis is reported in a patient with chronic hepatitis B.
