JOHN A. WASHINGTON II, M.D.
Aeromonas hydrophila was isolated from 27 patients over a 2-year period. Eight of the patients had a history of injuries associated with exposure to soil or water. Two patients with bacteremia had underlying hematologic disorders, and one of these two died of a polymicrobial septicemia. Nearly all isolates of A. hydrophila occurred in mixed cultures, and eight patients had acquired their infection nosocomially. Gentamicin was the most active agent in vitro against 20 strains tested.
