It is not a common human pathogen and infrequently causes bacteraemia, which is most often intravenous catheter-associated. There are only 2 reports of bacteremia occurring due to soft tissue infection caused by P. putida. We report 2 cases of P. putida cellulitis with bacteremia. Both occurred in immunosuppressed patients who sustained minor trauma with definite or likely exposure to water and soil. Copyright © 2016 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
