Abstract

A 49-year-old male with underlying liver disease presented with fever and signs of sepsis. Non-O1/non-O139 was isolated from his blood culture, which was positive for the A and R genes. We report this fatal case of non-O1/non-O139 sepsis and review the literature on non-O1/non-O139 sepsis in patients with chronic liver disease.
