Abstract
Vibrio cholerae (V. cholerae) serotype O1 or O139 is the etiological agents of cholera. These bacteria are responsible for gastrointestinal infections or more rarely bacteremia in patients with an underlying disease, leading to life-threatening complications. A 73-year-old man presented to the hospital with fever and vomiting. Blood cultures grew non-O1/non-O139 V. cholerae. In this case, clinical improvement and microbiological eradication were achieved due to early appropriate antibiotic therapy. These results suggest that early antibiotic therapy allowed a good outcome in diabetic patient infected with V. cholerae . To our knowledge, this is the first case of primary bacteremia caused by non-O1/non-O139 Vibrio cholera in Korea.
