Abstract

This study examined established enteric pathogens, Arcobacter species and enterotoxigenic Bacteroides fragilis (ETBF), in 201 U.S. and European travelers with acute diarrhea acquired in Mexico, Guatemala, and India. Arcobacter butzleri and ETBF were detected in 8% and 7% of diarrhea cases, respectively.
