A 49-year-old male with underlying liver disease presented with fever and signs of sepsis. Non–O1/non-O139 Vibrio cholerae was isolated from his blood culture, which was positive for the hlyA and toxR genes. We report this fatal case of non-O1/non-O139 V. cholera sepsis and review the literature on non-O1/non-O139 V. cholerae sepsis in patients with chronic liver disease. © 2013 SGM.
