Septicaemia caused by Aeromonas species is a life-threatening condition, arising primarily in immunocompromised patients, which has rarely been reported in Scandinavia. Herein we describe 3 cases of Aeromonas sobria bacteraemia from Denmark. All the patients were male and all 3 cases occurred during the summer. Two patients had acute leukaemia and HIV infection, respectively, while the third patient had colorectal cancer diagnosed several years later. The clinical presentation in all patients was chest and/or abdominal pain with fever developing into sepsis without any known infectious focus. All patients responded well to antibiotic therapy.
