Robins-Browne RM. First described in , Escherichia coli gradually emerged as a cause of infantile diarrhea. Currently, four pathogenic categories of diarrheagenic E. coli are recognized: enteropathogenic (EPEC), enterotoxigenic (ETEC), enteroinvasive (EIEC), and enterohemorrhagic (EHEC).Cited by: Enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC), characterized by its ability to induce “attaching and effacing” (A/E) lesions the intestinal epithelium, is recognized as an important diarrheagenic agent in developing countries. Recently, EPEC has also been reported to be prevalent in the industrialized part of the world. Abstract. A total of 54 (2755 per cent) enteropathogenic E. coli (EPEC) were isolated from cases of infantile diarrhea with preponderance of serotype (27 strains), followed by (13 strains), (11 strains) and (three strains).Cited by: 1. Multidrug-resistant enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) is responsible for a large number of cases of infantile diarrhoea in developing countries, causing failure in treatment with consequent health burden and resulting in a large number of deaths every year. This study was undertaken to determine the proportion of typical and atypical EPEC in under five children with diarrhoea and controls Author: Taru Singh, Shukla Das, VG Ramachandran, Dheeraj Shah, Rumpa Saha, Sajad Ahmad Dar, Arvind Rai.

The E. coli serogroups and serotypes traditionally associated with infantile diarrhea are shown in Table 1. Evidence will be presented in this review to showthat patho-genicity is not restricted to serogroup or serotype.

Zuberi, Mushtaq A. Khan (PMRC Research Centre, Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre and National Institute of Child Health, Karachi. The association of a certain strain of E. coli with infantile diarrhea was first demonstrated by slide agglutination by Bray and Beavan 19 in and reported in further detail in They identified serologically homogeneous E. coli organisms in most infants with summer diarrhea .

  Escherichia coli (E. coli) is a gram-negative, rod-shaped flagellated bacterium. Although it is an essential component of the bacterial gut flora, disease may Diarrheagenic E. coli – Knowledge for medical students and physicians. The aim of the present case control study was to investigate the prevalence of atypical enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) and its possible role in causing diarrhoea among children Cited by:   Abstract. First described in , Escherichia coli gradually emerged as a cause of infantile diarrhea. Currently, four pathogenic categories of diarrheagenic E. coli are recognized: enteropathogenic (EPEC), enterotoxigenic (ETEC), enteroinvasive (ETEC), and enterohemorrhagic (EHEC). Of these, ETEC and EPEC are important causes of pediatric diarrhea Cited by: E coli OH7 is the STEC serotype most commonly associated with HUS, which is defined by the triad of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute renal dysfunction. Children younger than 5 years are at highest risk of HUS, which occurs in approximately 15% of those with laboratory-confirmed E coli OH7 infection, as compared .
