Vibrio furnissii is a Gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium.[1] Its type strain is ATCC 35016 (= CDC B3215). V. furnissii is aerogenic, and uses L-rhamnose, L-arginine, L-arabinose, maltose, and D-mannitol, but not L-lysine, L-ornithine, or lactose. It has been isolated from patients with gastroenteritis, bacteremia, skin lesions,[2] and septicemia.[3]
