Abstract: Hafnia alvei is a Gram negative bacterium that belongs to the family Enterobacteriaceae. It is part of the intestinal flora of humans and animals, moreover it has been described from natural environments and foodstuffs. In human medicine is considered an opportunistic bacterium that causes different infections associated to underlying illnesses or predisposing factors as immunocompromised patients. The knowledge and literature about this bacterium in veterinary medicine is scarce, highlighting its importance in gastropods and bees, and it has also been described in poultry, mares, fish and ruminants producing various clinicopathologic signs.
