Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Vibrio vulnificus:
FDA Bad Bug Book (Excerpt)
Nature of Disease: Wound infections result either from contaminating an open wound with sea water harboring the organism, or by lacerating part of the body on coral, fish, etc., followed by contamination with the organism. The ingestion of V. vulnificus by healthy individuals can result in gastroenteritis. The "primary septicemia" form of the disease follows consumption of raw seafood containing the organism by individuals with underlying chronic disease, particularly liver disease (see below). In these individuals, the microorganism enters the blood stream, resulting in septic shock, rapidly followed by death in many cases (about 50%). Over 70% of infected individuals have distinctive bulbous skin lesions.

Vibrio vulnificus (General): DBMD (Excerpt)
Among healthy people, ingestion of V. vulnificus
can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. In immunocompromised
persons, particularly those with chronic liver disease, V.
vulnificus can infect the bloodstream, causing a severe and
life-threatening illness characterized by fever and chills, decreased
blood pressure (septic shock), and blistering skin lesions. V.
vulnificus bloodstream infections are fatal about 50% of
the time. (Source: excerpt from Vibrio vulnificus (General): DBMD)
