Abstract

Yersinia enterocolitica is known to be associated with gastroenteritis in children and Reiter's syndrome in adults, but it has only rarely been the cause of primary soft tissue infections. A patient with diabetes mellitus developed a calf abscess, from which Y. enterocolitica was isolated in pure culture. Incision, drainage, and intravenous gentamicin therapy resulted in cure.
