The Role of Aeromonas in Diarrhea: a Review

  title={The Role of Aeromonas in Diarrhea: a Review},
  author={Alexander von Graevenitz},
The evidence for an enteropathogenic role of Aeromonas spp. is still controversial. This review examines various parameters related to a causative role of Aeromonas and concludes that infraspecific subsets of strains with a particular array of enterotoxin genes are potential enteropathogens. The consequences for stool bacteriology are discussed.
