A "related Vibrio" was found in numerous stool cultures from a 16-month-old boy with chronic diarrhea. An outbreak of acute diarrhea occurred in the nursery frequented by this boy; the same Vibrio was isolated in the stool cultures of all symptomatic cases. Using a new device, the related Vibrio has also been isolated in intestinal aspirates at different levels of the gastrointestinal tract in several cases.
Slight changes were observed in the jejunal mucosa of the child with chronic diarrhea.
