Campylobacter Mucosalis in Faeces from a Child with Severe Haemorrhagic Colitis
Haemorrhagic colitis is regularly seen in children. Some cases are caused by bacterial infections but often no infectious agent can be demonstrated. Campylobacter mucosalis has not previously been found in human faecal samples1 but may cause haemorrhagic colitis in pigs. So far, only one case of human infection with C. mucosalis 1 has been published.
