Here we describe the case of a young man who sustained a seal bite to his hand and developed a seal finger. The symptoms of seal finger include pain, swelling, discharge, and in some cases there is joint involvement.(1) The organism isolated from the lesion was identified as a Bisgaardia hudsonensis and we believe this is the first case of a seal bite caused by B. hudsonensis which is a new member of the family Pasteurellaceae and as yet unpublished.
