Abstract

Even though “shot-gun” treatment often proves effective in acute enteric infections, attempt to establish accurate diagnosis is still worthwhile. In most cases acute enteric infection is self limited and responds well to symptomatic treatment. Postantibiotic diarrhea is relatively common and is often severe. Usually the organism is staphylococcus and at present, at least, erythromycin seems to be the drug of choice in treatment.
