The isolation of Vibrio alginolyticus from a patient with acute entero-colitis.
Access this Article
<i> Vibrio alginolyticus</i> was isolated from the “rice water” diarrheal stool of a female patient with acute entero-colitis, and from the trout roe which she ate. Subsequently, it was clearly demonstrated that, besides of <i>Vibrio cholerae</i> and <i>Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Vibrio alginolyticus</i> was also enteropathogenic for humans. Additionally, we described the difference in the colony formation on some commercial thiosulfate citrate bile salts sucrose (TCBS) agars when <i>Vibrio alginolyticus</i> and <i>Vibrio cholerae</i> were tested.
