The article discusses a study that examined the resistance to ceftriaxone in Vibrio cholerae isolates from three pediatric patients. To determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of ceftriaxone, the researchers subjected the isoloates to the agar dilution test and E test. The significance of the results to the use of antimicrobials is also examined.
