Severe septic shock and
cardiac arrest in a patient with Vibrio metschnikovii: a case report
Vibrio metschnikovii is a very rare species and can be fatal to patients with
massive comorbidity. Until now only eight other cases have been reported.
This case report describes a
78-year-old Danish man who presented with fever, hypotension and
unconsciousness and he developed cardiac arrest. Vibrio metschnikovii was
identified in all his blood samples and effective antibiotics were initiated.
The human sources are believed to
include shrimps, birds, water, sewage and seafood. We report the first case
of Vibrio metschnikovii from a Nordic country and the report
shows that even though isolation of Vibrio metschnikovii from
human clinical samples is very rare, it still infects humans and may be fatal,
despite sufficient treatment.
