Non-O1 Vibrio cholerae septicemia: case report, discussion of literature, and relevance to bioterrorism.
Non-O1 Vibrio cholerae (NOVC) is a rare cause of septicemia in the United States. We report a case of NOVC septicemia and discuss the literature pertaining to this organism. NOVC takes on new significance given that it can be confused with toxigenic V. cholerae, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention category B bioterrorism agent.
