Abstract

Brevundimonas vesicularis is a non-fermenting gram-negative bacillus, aerobic and motile. This microrganism is ubiquitous in the environment and has rarely been implicated in human infections. We present the second case of cutaneous infection caused by B. vesicularis in an immunocompetent patient.
