Pasteurella multocida is a major pathogen in local wound infections due to animal bites. Pneumonia and bacteremia are less frequent and usually associated with local or general impairment of host defenses. Scarce reports exist about Pasteurella multocida infections in HIV infected patients. We report here a case of hypoxemic pneumonia and bacteremia due to Pasteurella multocida revealing an HIV infection in a young man.
