Hafnia alvei is generally considered an opportunistic pathogen, associated mostly with nosocomial infections. There are a few case reports in literature regarding its role as an infectious agent. In this article, we describe a case of urinary tract infection in a patient with multimorbidity, a few weeks after her hospitalization for COVID-19, which was treated with ceftriaxone administration for eight days. The aim of this study is to underline the role of H. alvei as a potential pathogen in patients with impaired health.
