Features of cholera and Vibrio parahaemolyticus diarrhoea endemicity in Calabar, Nigeria.
The clinical and epidemiological features of acute vibrio diarrhoeal disease were studied in 881 patients seen at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital (UCTH), Calabar, Nigeria, between January and December 1989.
Stools and rectal swabs of patients and randomly-selected control subjects were microscopically and culturally examined for the presence of enteric pathogens.
Households of vibrio diarrhoea cases and matched controls were visited for ecologic studies.
