Abstract: The patient was a 43-year-old farmer.He had presented with a recurrent erythema,erosion,effusion and ulcer for four months on both feet.Twenty days prior to the presentation,the condition was exacerbated.Culture of the purulent secretion from the lesions on both feet grew Stenortrophomonas maltophilia which was confirmed based on the colony appearance and ATB system.The patient experienced an evident improvement one week after treatment with trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.Most lesions subsided three weeks later,and a complete care was achieved four weeks later.
