A 46-year-old man presented with pain and fever and a postphlebitic ulcer on his left leg. The wound was suppurative and open at the margins, but there was little underlying fasciitis and no apparent muscle or blood vessel involvement. Three separate wound cultures were obtained at two-day intervals, and all showed only Vibrio cholerae non-01. The patient was successfully treated with cefazolin sodium. This marks the second documented case of V cholerae non-01 type alone as a causative agent of cellulitis, and the first case where no saltwater origin could be demonstrated.
