Abstract

Campylobacter enteritis appears to be a frequent cause of bacterial diarrhoea, especially among children. The species isolated in our study are C. jejuni and C. coli. The clinical characteristics are acute diarrhoea (sometimes with blood) and abdominal pain. The evolution is usually favorable without treatment. In serious and prolonged cases, the treatment is based on Erythromycin which was active against all the strains.
