Vibrio vulnificus is a halophilic gram-negative bacillus capable of causing severe to life-threatening infections in high-risk populations. Osteomyelitis caused by V. vulnificus is extremely rare, and a previously reported case had been associated with an adjacent soft-tissue infection. Herein we report the first case of vertebral osteomyelitis resulting from hematogenous spread of V. vulnificus gastroenteritis. The patient was successfully treated with a combination of cefotaxime and ciprofloxacin. (Korean J Med 2014;86:519-522)
