Aeromonas species are gram negative bacilli widely distributed in aquatic environment.The most common pathogens among Aeromonas species include Aeromonas caviae & Aeromonas veronii. They are known to cause sepsis, gastroinstestinal and extraintestinal infections. Here we report a case of Aeromonas salmoncida isolated from a non healing ulcer of a 63 year old female patient. It is usually isolated from aquatic fishes and is rarely isolated from human infections.
