Abstract

Vibrio vulnificus, part of normal marine flora, is a serious human pathogen capable of causing septicemia and death in susceptible persons. Disease is caused by raw shellfish ingestion or wound exposure to seawater. We present a unique case of a man who developed V. vulnificus septicemia, cerebral infarction, and left homonymous hemianopia.
