CIRINO, Pablo Vitoriano; GUIMARAES, Newton Sales  and  FOLLADOR, Ivonise. Rare cutaneous infection by Acinetobacter baumannii in an immunocompetent patient: a case report. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.4, pp.335-338. ISSN 0365-0596.

Acinetobacter baumannii is an oportunistic pathogen that used to be considered as having low virulence; however, it is currently known to be involved in infectious processes in patients with immunosuppression, large burns and those under mechanical ventilation in intensive care units. This case report emphasizes the possibility of cutaneous infection by A. baumanni in immunocompetent patients.
