Abstract

We herein describe a case of trauma-related wound infection with a subcutaneous abscess caused by both Enterobacter cancerogenus and Aeromonas hydrophila. An 89-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital because of an injury that he had suffered in a car accident. The right dorsal region of the foot around the wound was reddish and swelling. The pus culture on his right foot grew E. cancerogenus and A. hydrophila. The patient was successfully treated with a 10-day course of meropenem and a 25-day course of levofloxacin. E. cancerogenus can therefore be a causative pathogen in skin and soft tissue infections among trauma patients.
