Abstract

is a motile, Gram-negative, oxidase-positive, halophilic bacteria first defined in 1977. It is ubiquitously present in marine environments and is one of the 11 non-cholera species pathogenic in humans, which can lead to human gastroenteritis and extra-intestinal manifestations.

A 73-year-old female patient was admitted to the hospital with acute gastroenteritis after consumption of seafood, which later by microbiological investigations was confirmed as , a member of the family . The patient was treated with oral doxycycline and ciprofloxacin.

, an emerging pathogen known for quite some time as an aetiological agent responsible, for acute gastroenteritis cases yet to get more clinical attention. Descriptions of putative virulence factors of this pathogen are limited, and in-depth studies on the pathogenesis of need to be established.
