Abstract

Bacteremia due to Vibrio cholerae non-O1 and non-O139 is a rare condition and potentially fatal. We report a case of bacteremia due to V. cholerae non-O1 and non-O139 in a Portuguese male with Hepatitis C cirrhosis, admitted due to acute diarrhea, after consuming shrimp. He had no recent travels. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of bacteremia due to V. cholerae non-O1 and non-O139 in Portugal.
