Abstract

Gram-negative bacilli of the genus are widespread in aquatic environments and can be responsible for human infections. Although extraintestinal and systemic infections have been reported with growing frequency in recent years, septicaemia remains an uncommon finding, often associated with serious underlying disease and predominantly related to the species , biovar sobria and . Here, a case of biovar veronii septicaemia and acute suppurative cholangitis is reported in a patient with chronic hepatitis B.
