AbstractWe report a case of septicaemia and muscle abscesses due to Aeromonas hydrophila. The patient was immunosuppressed due to Hodgkin's disease and treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy. The abscesses resolved after prolonged antibiotic therapy. Organisms that were once considered rarely pathogenic are emerging as increasingly important in causing potentially lethal infections in immunosuppressed patients.
