Abstract

We describe a case of Vibrio fluvialis hemorrhagic cellulitis and cerebritis following multiple fire-ant stings and wading in brackish water. A high index of suspicion is required for diagnosis of this specific pathogen and concordant infection. This is, to our knowledge, the first report of this type of wound infection.
