Abstract

A patient had bilateral deep brachial vein thrombophlebitis in which Vibrio fetus was recovered from 6 blood cultures of the 6 drawn. Fever and phlebitis continued with treatment with intravenous doses of heparin and oxacillin but rapidly improved with treatment change of oxacillin to clindamycin. In vitro antibiotic disk susceptibility testing confirmed resistance to oxacillin and susceptibility to clindamycin. Vibrio fetus infection is associated with the vascular endothelium in this and previously reported cases.
