Psedomonas aeruginosa is an etiologic agent in serious wound infection. Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection is problematic because it can delay the wound healing process. We report a case of managing 60 years-old man who underwent local flap reconstruction to cover the defect of back after wide excision of epithelioid sarcoma. He began to show several infection signs such as wound dehiscence, fever, tenderness, skin discoloration, greenish discharge. e decided to use empirical antibiotics that cover Pseudomonas species and to change dressing method to Bethadine irrigation, daily debridement and then vacuum assisted dressing. The patient''s wound improved progressively and was covered completely with split thickness skin graft. (J Korean Wound Management Soc 2013;9:42-45)
