  1. Acute diarrhoea and Campylobacter in Peruvian children: a clinical and epidemiologic approach.

    Article - En anglais

    A study performed on Peruvian children < 10 years of age and their controls showed that Campylobacter jejuni is a leading cause of diarrhoea.

    Infants 1 year old or younger were the most affected.

    The disease was usually moderately severe, although > 50 per cent of patients required i.v. fluid therapy.

    Campylobacter was also more frequent in malnourished patients, who come from socio-economically deprived groups, with overcrowding, poor sanitation, and frequent contact with domestic birds and animals.

    The seasonal behaviour suggests that diarrhoea caused by Campylobacter is endemic in this area.
