Serratia ficaria was isolated from sputum in a 62-year-old man and from tracheal aspiration fluid in a 62-year-old woman with acute respiratory distress. These strains are the second and third isolations of S. ficaria from human sources. The case reports are presented, together with the laboratory findings and the biochemical activities of the isolates.
