Abstract

We report a case of epigastric pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea in a patient who had returned from vacation in a Central American country. Unilateral wrist pain and, later, unilateral knee pain developed. Chromobacterium violaceum was eventually identified from blood cultures. We review the manifestations of infection with this opportunistic pathogen.
