Abstract:

Serratia marcescens causing a soft tissue infection is very rare. But, among the immunocompromised patients it is becoming an important pathogen causing infection. Here we report a case of an elderly male with type 2 diabetes mellitus presenting with severe soft tissue infection due to S. marcescens. The diagnosis and antibiotic susceptibility pattern are discussed.
