Abstract

Acute ileitis in children is frequently diagnosed at the time of laparotomy for acute abdominal pain and is usually due to inflammatory bowell disease, Yersinia, or Campylobacter infections. We report a case in which a pathogenic strain of Escherichia coli was responsible for the disease. The diagnosis, microbiology, and epidemiology are discussed.
