Abstract
In conclusion, Aeromonas species are important pathogens causing posttraumatic wound infections complicated open fracture. Most of the infections during the study period were polymicrobial and enterococcus was the most common co-pathogen. The overall outcome is poor, especially for patients who did not receive initial appropriate antibiotic or presented with septic shock.

Key words: Aeromonas, Open Fracture, Septic shock
