Description:
The importance of Campylobaeter species as a major cause of food borne enteritis has been recognised only in the last decade or so. In 1988 the number of reported Campylobaeter infections in man in England, Wales and Northern Ireland was 28,714 and now exceeds the number of reported Salmonella infections in these (Fig. 1) and other countries; Among people with acute enteritis who reported to a single general practice in England the projected annual rate of Camylobaeter infection was 1100/100,000. In 1990 sixty three isolates of Campylobaeter jejuni were reported to the Laboratory Surveillance System by other laboratories in the Dublin area. The number of isolates was greatest in April and May and in males. It is noteworthy that 50% of isolates were from children under five years of age.
