  1. Etiology of traveller's diarrhea in spanish travellers to developing countries.

    Article - En anglais

    A cohort of 337 Spanish travellers to developing countries is presented.

    They all consulted us for traveller's diarrhea (TD).

    Bacteriological, parasitological and virological examinations were performed.

    A bacterial cause was found in 61.65% of travellers.

    Toxigenic and classical pathogenic Escherichia coli strains were the main bacterial agents.

    In comparison with other studies, Spanish travellers harboured Y. enterocolitica and EPEC organisms as a cause of TD.

    G. lamblia and E. histolytica were the most frequently isolated protozoa.

    Helminths were found in only 9 patients.

    No rotavirus infections were diagnosed.

    Previous antibiotic treatment had been taken by 161 patients.
