Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) isolates from 36 persons with acute traveler's diarrhea from whom no other pathogens were recovered were tested (after no more than three subcultures) for the presence of colonization factor antigens I and II (CFA/I and CFA/II) and type 1 somatic pili. CFA/I or CFA/II was identified in 7 of 10 strains with heat-labile and heat-stable enterotoxins (LT+/ST+), but in only 2 of 12 LT-/ST+ (P less than 0.05) and 0 of 14 LT+/ST- (P less than 0.02) strains.
