A 47-year-old male suffering from chronic purulent ear discharge was investigated bacteriologically in autumn 1977. The isolated strain was identified as Vibrio alginolyticus. The fact that the patient spent his vacation at a Black-Sea resort every year strongly pleads for a direct inoculation of the halophilic Vibrio.
