Vibrio damsela was isolated from a wound infection of a 71 year-old patient with chronic renal failure. She complained of severe pain, swelling and erythema in her right hand and fingers, which developed after a puncture injury by a crab, Portunus trituberculatus. Her wound infection was improved after pus drainage and antibiotic therapy. This represents the first reported case of wound infection due to V. damsela in Korea.
