Aeromonas aquariorum is a recently described Aeromonas species. We present a cirrhotic patient with septicemia and bloody diarrhea in whom A. aquariorum was isolated from the blood and stool. The species identification was based on sequence analysis of the partial rpoB and rpoD genes. The A. aquariorum isolates carried genes encoding hemolysin, aerolysin, and the cytotonic enterotoxin Alt. Significant A. aquariorum-induced cytotoxicity in intestinal epithelial cells was also demonstrated.
