Amputation of an arm due to infection with Vibrio vulnificus after beach holiday
Infection with Vibrio vulnificus is a rare condition with approximately 11 cases reported in the Danish literature. It is characterized by soft tissue infection/wound, necrotizing fasciitis and septicaemia. In this case report we present a patient admitted with a rapid progression and sepsis consistent with V. vulnificus infection but with no informa­tion of water exposure. The initial treatment was surgery and sepsis management including broad-spectrum antibiotics. On day eight the patient’s right arm was amputated. On day 16 the patient was discharged from the intensive care unit, and on day 32 the patient was transferred to a local hospital.
