Abstract

Propionibacterium acnes is a typical component of the human body's flora and has been implicated as the causative infectious agent following a variety of medical operations. We present a case of a 21-year-old male with severe global acneiform eruption with a non-healing limb lesion near the orthopedic surgery incisions.
