Int J Infect Dis 1997; 1(4):215-216.

Vibrio hollisae is a small, non-cholera gram-negative bacterium. This organism, only recently described, may cause an acute gastroenteritis. It fails to grow on selective culture media usually used to isolate Vibrio species. Bacteremia from V. hollisae has been reported in several patients with liver disease. This report describes the first case of V. hollisae bacteremia in a patient without evidence of either immune dysfunction or liver disease.

Key Words: bacteremia, infection, liver disease, Vibrio hollisae
