Aeromonas hydrophilia of Food Poisoning Infections



8.  Aeromonas hydrophilia


Reports of outbreaks of A. Hydrophilia infections have come from India and Ethiopia. The organism was isolated from patients with diarrhoea. Long term surveys of diarrhoea in children and adults in the USA indicate both A. Hydrophilia and A. Sobria play significant roles. Water, milk, and seafoods were considered to be basic sources of the organism.
