YERSINIA ENTEROCOLITICA INFECTIONS AND PORK: THE MISSING LINK
TLDR
Specific control measures to reduce contamination and consumption of raw pork may reduce the incidence of YE infections. Expand
New enrichment method for isolation of pathogenic Yersinia enterocolitica serogroup O:3 from pork
TLDR
ITC was by far the most sensitive method for the recovery of Y. enterocolitica O:3, especially from ground meat and masseter muscles, while cold and two-step enrichments yielded better results for nonpathogenic strains. Expand
Cryptosporidium spp., a frequent cause of diarrhea in Central Africa
TLDR
Staining with 1% safranin was not only more simple and rapid but also more sensitive than the modified Ziehl-Neelsen technique, and the parasite was not found in 94 formed stools submitted for parasitological examination. Expand
Antimicrobial resistance and serotypes of Shigella isolates in Kigali, Rwanda (1983 to 1993): increasing frequency of multiple resistance.
TLDR
The serotype distribution and susceptibility to nine antibiotics was determined for Shigella isolates cultured in the medical laboratory of the Centre Hospitalier de Kigali, Rwanda, during 1983 to 1993 and resistance patterns differed strongly by species, S. flexneri being more frequently resistant than S. sonnei.

Widespread occurrence of multiple drug-resistantSalmonella typhi in India
TLDR
Physicians in European countries should be aware that treatment may fail if patients with typhoid fever who have recently returned from the Indian sub-continent are given first-line treatment with chloramphenicol, trimethoprim or ampicillin. Expand
Nonvalue of cold enrichment of stools for isolation of Yersinia enterocolitica serotypes 3 and 9 from patients
During an 8-year period 14,092 fecal specimens and 1,428 excised appendixes were examined for the presence of Yersinia enterocolitica, with different combinations of direct plating media andExpand
Frequent isolation of Edwardsiella tarda and Pleisiomonas shigelloides from healthy Zairese freshwater fish: a possible source of sporadic diarrhea in the tropics
TLDR
The intestinal contents of 59 Zairese freshwater fish were examined for the presence of potential human enteric pathogens and it is hypothesized that sporadic cases of tropical diarrhea with E. tarda or P. shigelloides can be traced to contact with or consumption of freshwater fish. Expand
COMMUNITY-ACQUIRED BACTERAEMIA IN AFRICAN CHILDREN
TLDR
The rate of hospital admission was higher among bacteraemic children (61%) than among group I (39%) or group II (46%) controls, and the case-fatality rate was similar in the three groups (9.3% versus 2.9% and 7.3%). Expand
Infections caused by Kingella kingae: report of four cases and review.
TLDR
Four patients with K. kingae infections are described, one with septicaemia, two with endocarditis, and one with osteoarthritis. Expand
