Description Serratia marcescens is a rare cause of soft tissue infection. However, it has been increasingly recognised as a pathogen causing infection in both immunocompromised patients and in patients in an intensive treatment unit setting. Here we describe an elderly patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus presenting with severe necrotic soft tissue infection due to S. marcescens acquired in the community. The literature on S. marcescens soft tissue infection is reviewed and management is discussed.
