Background. Gram-negative bacteria may be responsible for feet intertrigo characterized by strong maceration and flogistic aspect.
Materials and methods. In a period of two years, 24 patients affected by intertrigo due to Gram-negative bacteria were observed. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was found in 20 out of 24 patients; it was observed both alone (2 cases) and associated with other Gram-negative bacteria (such as Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli) and Gram-positive bacteria.
Results. Gram-negative bacteria were sensible to a variety of antibiotics but not infrequently antibiotic-resistence was found; therefore the need to carry out antibiogram for each patient is stressed.
