Infection is one of the serious complications in an implanted permanent pacemaker. Pasteurella species are a component of the normal oropharyngeal flora in many different animals. In humans, the skin and soft tissue are the most common sites for Pasteurella infection. We report a case of permanent pacemaker infection by Pasteurella aerogenes in a patient after four month of implantation. There was no history of contact with any animal during this period.
