Abstract

This infection first surfaced as a U.S. public health problem in the early 1980s. The problem persists, in the United States and elsewhere. Illness may resemble that in other infectious colitides and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of ischemic colitis. Prompt diagnosis may be made by specific stool culture.
