  1. The etiology of early childhood diarrhea : a community study from Guinea-Bissau.

    Article - En anglais

    A potential enteropathogen was found in 50% of 1219 diarrheal episodes and 48% of 511 asymptomatic controls in a 1-year community study of childhood diarrhea.

    Rotavirus (3% of episodes), Cryptosporidium species (6%), and enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) with EPEC adherence factor (4%) were more prevalent in cases than controls.

    Giardia lamblia (19%) was the most prevalent organism but was not associated with diarrhea.

    Enterotoxigenic E. coli (12%), Strongyloides stercoralis (5%), Shigella species (2%), Entamoeba histolytica trophozoites (2%), and Vibrio cholerae (1%) were found at nonsignificantly higher rates.

    Salmonella and Campylobacter species were more prevalent among control infants.

    Cryptosporidium species and sequential infections from other pathogens caused persistent diarrhea.
