Abstract

Clinical features of a case of enteritis due to Vibrio parahemolyticus are presented. Superficial ulcerations of colonic mucosa were observed directly by sigmoidoscopy. Previously such damage had not been documented but inferred from the presence of red cells and leukocytes in the stools. The literature pertinent to V. parahemolyticus and its recent presence in the United States is reviewed.
