Soft Tissue Abscess Due to Eikenella Corrodens after Human Bite

ABSTRACT

Eikenella corrodens is found in oral, gastrointestinal and genitourinary normal flora. Eikenella species have been shown to cause serious human infec­tions such as head-neck infection, pulmonary infec­tion, arthritis, endocarditis, intraabdominal infection, pancreatic abscesses and infection after human bite wounds. Although injuries caused by human bites are less than those caused by animal bites, such injuries have higher risk for infection and complica­tion development. The most common clinical case observed after human bites is infections. If the in­fection that may appear is not treated, it may cause amputation and severe complications, which may result with death. One of the most common agents that cause these infections is E. corrodens [1-3]. We reported a rarely case of E. corrodens infection after human bite. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2016;6(1): 36-37
