The cutaneous lesions associated with Pseudomonas infection are varied. Their clinical appearance and severity depend on the patient’s immunological status. Healthy persons may have a relatively minor infection such as intertrigo, green discoloration of the nails with onycholysis, or folliculitis. In immunodepressed patients, Pseudomonas species are a common cause of septicemia. Ecthyma gangrenosum is one of its characteristic cutaneous manifestations. Foot intertrigo is mostly caused by dermatophytes and yeasts, less frequently by gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Seventy cases of intertrigo by gram-negative bacteria were observed.
