Foot infections are the most common infectious complications needs patient to be hospitalized in persons with diabetes. Achromobacter xylosoxidans especially causes invasive infections in immunocompromised patients such as malignancy, solid organ transplantation, hypogammaglobulinemia, AIDS and premature babies. With this case report we want to present two cases of Achromobacter xylosoxidans as extremely rare seen cause of diabetic foot infection. The cases are followed up more than 10 years in our out-patient clinic with a diabetes and diabetic foot complications. The tissue cultures of these cases with the soft tissue infection were identified as Achromobacter xylosoxidans and with surgical debridement and antimicrobial therapy we get effective clinical and microbiological results. Tissue culture is very important to find and identify the real microorganism causing an infection in a diabetic foot infections. To make a true microbiological culture leads us to identify the extremely rare seen microorganisms and to plan the therapy as in our cases.
