AbstractWe describe the first case of community-acquired Propionibacterium avidum subcutaneous tissue infection in a cirrhotic patient. A 70-year-old Chinese male with a 2-year history of hepatitis B virus-induced chronic liver failure and hemorrhoidectomy 17 months previously presented with a painful left buttock abscess, which was culture positive for P. avidum. Being a normal flora of skin with low pathogenicity, there have been only 3 case reports on P. avidum infection, all associated with surgical intervention within 2 to 6 weeks before the onset of P. avidum infection. We hereby review the literature on P. avidum summarizing the virulence factors of Propionibacterium. species, and postulate the pathogenesis of P. avidum abscess.
