Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas stutzeri are important human pathogens of this species. They may trigger catheter-associated urinary tract infection, infection of the lower respiratory tract, wound infection, or sepsis.

Pseudomonas spp. frequently cause nosocomial infections.

Transmission mainly occurs via contaminated water and food respectively.
