Cellulitis in an immunocompromised patient
The case of a 77-year-old, immunocompromised male patient with Campylobacter fetus bacteremia complicated by cellulitis, is reported. The infection was characterized by
a protracted course with one recurrence, responding to a prolonged course of amoxicillin-clavulanic acid treatment. Campylobacter are very motile, curved, microaerophilic Gram-negative bacteria. Among the species of Campylobacter, C. fetus usually presents as an extra-intestinal infection, mainly bacteremia, but rarely induces digestive symptoms. In humans, C. fetus infection is observed in patients with severe underlying disease, such as immunodeficiency.
