Resumé

The clinical manifestations and epidemiological data of 11 patients infected with Vibrio vulnificus found in Denmark during the unusually warm summer of 1994 are reported. All patients had been exposed to seawater prior to illness, but none had consumed seafood. Nine patients, including four with bacteraemia, developed skin manifestations of various degrees of severity. One patient died of septic shock despite surgery and treatment with relevant antibiotics. Four patients contracted the disease while fishing. High seawater temperature increases the risk of V. vulnificus infections even in temperate climates such as the Danish. Exposure to seawater, including handling of fresh seafood, during warm periods carries a risk of infection with V. vulnificus.
