Abstract

In recent years Arcobacter butzleri was found in faeces of patients with diarrhoea or reccurent abdominal pain in USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Thailand, Italy, France, and Germany1,2,3,4,9. Risk factors such as exposure to contaminated water or day care contact were noted. The reservoirs and vehicles of transmission for A. butzleri strains may be identified using a combination of biotyping and serotyping techniques developed by Lior and Woodward5,6. Since the time of our initial report in 1993, concerning the first isolation of A. butzleri from poultry meat, methods for the recovery of this organism have improved. The following described biotypes and serogroups of A. butzleri isolates from poultry carcass samples and suggests the possibility of foodborne arcobacter infection in humans.
