Photobacterium damselae subsp. damselae has been known as an opportunistic pathogen in fish and mammals. Human infectious cases are often very serious and occasionally fatal. We previously reportedtwo fatal cases caused by this subspecies where the patients developed multiple organ failure within 20-36 h after the onset of initial symptoms. Despite its ability to cause serious infections in humans, this subspecies has not been well studied because human infectious cases caused by this… CONTINUE READING
