ABSTRACT • Non-O1 and non-O139 Vibrio species such as Vibrio albensis, as well as Aeromonas hydrophila are marine inhabitants that can cause intestinal and extraintestinal infections such as bacteremias. Concurrent blood stream infection with both pathogens are rare. Herein, we present the first case of central venous access device associated blood stream simultaneous infection due to V. albensis and A. hydrophila in a patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
