bacterial pathogens associated with diarrhoea on the island of crete.stool specimens from 3,600 diarrhoeal patients from the island of crete, greece, were examined for bacterial pathogens, during a three-year period (1992-1994). one or more pathogens were identified in 826 patients (22.9%), more often from children. salmonella spp. were the most frequently isolated organisms in 13.6% of the patients, followed by campylobacter in 4.7%, and enteropathogenic escherichia coli (epec) in 3.9%. yersinia enterocolitica was found in 0.7%, shigella spp. in 0.7% and aeromon ...19979384274
