Arch Dermatol. 2006;142(9):1231-1244. doi:10.1001/archderm.142.9.1240

Campylobacter is a spiral or curved, motile, microaerophilic gram-negative rod.1 Although the most common manifestation of Campylobacter is intestinal, there are rare reports of cutaneous manifestations, including cellulitis,1 thrombophlebitis,2 erythema nodosum,3 and erythematous nodules.4 We report an additional case with novel features.
