FERNANDEZ, Heriberto; VERA, Fernando; VILLANUEVA, María Paz  e  GARCIA, Andrea. Occurrence of campylobacter species in healthy well-nourished and malnourished children. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2008, vol.39, n.1, pp. 56-58. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822008000100013.

The occurrence of Campylobacter species in healthy, well-nourished and healthy, malnourished children of low socioeconomic level in Southern Chile was determined. Campylobacter carriers were significantly most frequent among malnourished (31.4%) than among well-nourished (9.9%) children. Six species were isolated from malnourished children whereas four were found among well-nourished children. C. upsaliensis was the most frequent (13.3%) species isolated from malnourished children, followed by C. lari (7.6%) and C. fetus ssp. fetus (1.9%).

Palavras-chave : Campylobacter species; malnourished children; well-nourished children; healthy carriers.
