摘要

Acinetobacter baumannii is rarely encountered as a pathogen causing community-acquired skin and soft tissue infection. A 79-year-old man had a fever for 3 days accompanied by pain and swelling over the left leg around an old scar caused by a dog bite 10 years ago. Two sets of blood cultures and a wound culture all yielded A. baumannii. The patient's condition deteriorated initially but recovered completely after 3 weeks of meropenem treatment. This case suggests that A. baumannii should be included among pathogens with the potential to cause complicated skin infection in the cummunity.
