Clinical features of 84 patients with V. vulnificus infection are analyzed and molecular features of isolates are described. 
Clinical Characteristics and Molecular Subtyping of Vibrio vulnificus Illnesses, Israel
The genetically distinct biotype 3 has penetrated Israeli freshwaters and is causing severe illness in persons who handle tilapia or carp.
Necrotizing Fasciitis from Vibrio vulnificus in a Patient with Undiagnosed Hepatitis and Cirrhosis
TLDR
A case of Vibrio vulnificus necrotizing fasciitis is reported in a patient with previously undiagnosed chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis, with significant risk factors for severe disease include preexisting liver disease. Expand
Vibrio vulnificus endophthalmitis occurring after ingestion of raw seafood.
TLDR
A case of endogenous endophthalmitis caused by V. vulnificus, occurring after the ingestion of raw seafood, is reported. Expand
Assorted ribotypes of Vibrio vulnificus human and environmental isolates.
TLDR
Although there was one indistinguishable ribotype among the four human isolates and one environmental isolate, taken as a whole, the ribotypes were highly diverse regardless of sample sources. Expand
Prognostic factor of mortality and its clinical implications in patients with necrotizing fasciitis caused by Vibrio vulnificus
TLDR
Multivariate analysis showed that treatment delayed beyond 3 days is an independent factor indicating a poor prognosis and early diagnosis and prompt treatment within 3  days post-injury or symptom onset should be the goal for treating patients with necrotizing fasciitis caused by V. vulnificus. Expand
Vibrio vulnificus: An Environmental and Clinical Burden
TLDR
Understanding the organism's antibiotic resistance profile is vital in order to select appropriate treatment and initiate appropriate prevention measures to treat and control V. vulnificus infections, which should eventually help lower the mortality rate associated with this pathogen worldwide. Expand
Genotypic Characterization of Vibrio vulnificus Clinical Isolates in Korea
TLDR
The geographical distribution of PFGE patterns for the strains from the southern part of Korea, a high-risk region for Vibrio septicemia, indicated that the isolates from southeastern Korea showed a comparatively higher degree of homology than those from southwestern Korea. Expand
In Vitro Activities of Tigecycline against Clinical Isolates of Aeromonas, Vibrio, and Salmonella Species in Taiwan
TLDR
All 198 Salmonella isolates and 200 of 201 Aeromonas isolates in this study were susceptible to tigecycline, by U. S. Food and Drug Administration criteria for Enterobacteriaceae. Expand
Molecular Pathogenesis of Vibrio vulnificus.
TLDR
The increasing use of genetic analysis coupled with detailed animal models is revealing new insight into the pathogenesis of V. vulnificus disease. Expand
Distribution of Virulence Markers among Vibrio vulnificus Isolates of Clinical and Environmental Origin and Regional Characteristics in Japan
TLDR
Investigation of the distribution of virulence markers among V. vulnificus isolates of clinical and environmental origin in three coastal areas with different infection incidences in Japan showed disparity in the ratios of genotypes depending on the sample origins. Expand

Vibrio vulnificus infection complicated by acute respiratory distress syndrome in a child with nephrotic syndrome
TLDR
A 9‐year‐old girl with nephrotic syndrome visited a local hospital after developing fever, chills, and edematous changes and multiple hemorrhagic bullae on both legs over 2 days and was treated as a V. vulnificus infection complicated with necrotizing fasciitis. Expand
Vibrio vulnificus infection.
TLDR
It is concluded that, for patients with severe wounds and evidence of V. vulnificus infection, an appropriate, powerful antibiotic, such as one of the third generation cephalosporins should be used as initial therapy unless the nature of the infection indicates other treatment. Expand
Isolation of Vibrio vulnificus Serovar E from Aquatic Habitats in Taiwan
TLDR
The existence of strains of Vibrio vulnificus serovar E that are avirulent for eels is reported in this work and Lipopolysaccharide of these strains lacked the highest molecular weight immunoreactive bands, which are probably involved in serum resistance. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the newer fluoroquinolones, as single agents were as effective as the combination therapy both in vitro and in vivo, and cefotaxime and minocycline acted synergistically in inhibiting V. vulnificus. Expand
