ABSTRACT
Campylobacter fetus, subspecies jejuni, is well recognized as a cause of acute diarrhea. This article reports a child with chronic diarrhea, of many months' duration, from whom campylobacter was isolated. Occasionally, the child would have a formed bowel movement. Formula and dietary changes made no difference in stool frequency, volume and consistency. Moreover, there were no history of fever or other infections, and she had never been treated with antibiotics. The doctors believe that the patient demonstrates that chronic diarrhea can be secondary to campylobacter, though they cannot be sure when the child became infected.
