Abstract:

Cellulitis is an inflammatory condition of the skin and subcutaneous tissue, characterized by erythema, swelling, warmth, and pain. The etiologic agents are most often Streptococcus pyogenes and Staphylococcus aureus, followed by non-group A β-hemolytic streptococci and gram-negative bacilli 1 Although Escherichia hermannii (E. hermannii); a gram negative rod shaped bacterium has occasionally been described as an opportunistic human pathogen, there is evidence in the literature to demonstrate that some strains contain determinants of pathogenicity. We report the first case of cellulitis co infected with E. hermannii and Klebsiella pneumonia (K. pneumonia). No prior antibiotic were started, confirming the invasiveness and pathogenic potential of the microorganisms.
