Formatted abstract
Vibrio vulnificus is a Gram-negative bacterium which is associated with severe infections in humans. We experienced two cases of sucrose-fermenting V. vulnificus infection. The causative agents in both cases were unidentifiable by conventional identification systems because of their unique characteristics, and sequencing of 16S rDNA was found to be useful for diagnosis.
