Risk and aetiology of diarrhoea at various tourist destinations


von Sonnenburg, Frank; Tornieporth, Nadia; Waiyaki, Peter; Lowe, Brett; Peruski, Leonard F; DuPont, Herbert L; Mathewson, John J; Steffen, Robert (2000). Risk and aetiology of diarrhoea at various tourist destinations. Lancet, 356(9224):133-4.

Abstract

Almost two of three tourists developed traveller's diarrhoea during 2-week stays at high-risk destinations. Large differences in infection rates between hotels were seen. Patients with milder forms of diarrhoea show a similar chronology to those more severely affected. Although enterotoxigenic Escherichia coil was the most frequent cause, viral pathogens were detected more often than in other studies.
