Rights and Permissions

We report a rare case of infected walled-off pancreatic necrosis in a diabetic patient with chronic pancreatitis caused by Aeromonas veronii biovar sobria. Aeromonads are ubiquitous organisms found mainly in aquatic environments. Infection may occur after the ingestion of contaminated seafood/water, massive aquatic exposure during near-drowning events or by exposure of an abraded wound to the bacteria. The clinical manifestations of Aeromonas infections are mostly gastrointestinal infections, bacteraemia and skin and soft-tissue infections. Intraabdominal infections due to Aeromonas are uncommon with pancreatic infections being even rare.
