Abstract

Yersinia enterocolitica rarely causes extraintestinal disease. A 54-year-old construction worker with chronic hepatitis C developed an axillary abscess following an injury to his finger. An aspirate from the axillary mass grew Y. enterocolitica. Direct inoculation is proposed as the mode of transmission of this classically enteric pathogen.
