We report a case of shigellosis observed in a young French sanitary assistant, returning from a refugees camp in Goma after a 5-week stay. Three different species were isolated from stool samples: Shigella flexneri, S. boydii and S. sonnei. This observation raises the matter of a chemical prophylaxis during a short stay in developing countries where sanitary conditions are poor.
