Shewanella putrefaciens is a rare Gram-negative bacillus, non-fermenting, oxidase-positive, and a hydrogen sulfide producer, which infrequently causes human infections. This opportunist germ causes infections in immunosuppressed people and in those with a history of contact with seawater or food contaminated with the microbe. We present a case of a patient with a pancreatic infection caused by this microbe.
