Keywords:Vibrio fluvialis, Urinary tract Infections, Vibrio species
We describe an unusual case of a urinary tract infection (UTI) in a 52-year-old woman caused by Vibrio fluvialis. To our knowledge, this is the first report of this organism causing such an infection. The source of the organism could be the highly contaminated water she is using at home.
