AbstractPsychrobacter species rarely cause infections in human. We reported herein a 62-year-old cirrhotic patient who presented with fever and diarrhoea after the consumption of raw geoduck clam. Blood culture grew Psychrobacter phenylpyruvicus which was sensitive to most anti-microbial agents. The patient responded promptly to intravenous antibiotics. This is the first report of human infection with this unusual organism which illustrates the potential health hazards of eating raw geoduck clam in patients with advanced liver disease. © 2006 The British Infection Society.
