Cellulitis owing to Aeromonas hydrophilia: treatment with hyperbaric oxygen.

Author information

Department of Surgery, Balmain District Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.


Aeromonas hydrophilia, a Gram-negative facultative anaerobe, is a rare cause of cellulitis. We review the literature and report a case of Aeromonas hydrophilia cellulitis which failed to respond to the conventional management of surgical debridement and antibiotics. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy was used successfully to control the infection. As far as we are aware this is the first case in world literature of Aeromonas hydrophilia cellulitis treated with hyperbaric oxygen.
