Shewanella putrefaciens


Also found in: Wikipedia.

Shewanella putrefaciens

A gram-negative facultative anaerobic bacterium primarily isolated from sea water, which reduces iron and manganese and produces trimethylene—the chemical responsible the stench of rotting fish; it is not part of normal human flora.
 
Clinical findings
Shewanella putrefaciens is a rare human pathogen and may be found in mixed cultures from the respiratory tract, urine, faeces and pleural fluid; it has been implicated in cellulitis, otitis media, septicaemia.
