Abstract

Pasteurella dagmatis is an oxidase and catalase positive, facultative anaerobic, gram-negative coccobacillus classified as a member of the family Pasteurellaceae. Pasteurella species are commonly colonizing the oropharynx of healthy domestic and wild animals including cats and dogs. These are usually pathogenic to domestic animals, but rarely to human beings. Pasteurella infection of human causes pneumonia, empyema, meningitis, peritonitis, bone and joint infection and septicemia. Recently, we experienced a case of dog-bite wounds from which Pasteurella dagmatis was isolated in a 39-year-old woman. To our knowledge, this is the first report of Pasteurella dagmatis isolated from dog-bite wounds in Korea.
