RUIZ-ESQUIDE, Fernando; LAFOURCADE, Mónica; ANDREWS, Edilia  and  FERNANDEZ, Heriberto. Neonatal Campylobacter coli hemorrhagic enteritis and bacteraemia. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2003, vol.34, n.4, pp.341-343. ISSN 1678-4405.

A case of neonatal campylobacteriosis with hemorrhagic enteritis and bacteraemia due to Campylobacter coli is presented. The mother, from a rural area, had three febrile self-limited diarrheic episodes during pregnancy. The neonate probably acquired the infection during labor. The newborn's serum showed high levels of specific immunoglobulins which could explain the scarce symptoms in this newborn, despite the delay in establishing the gentamicin therapy.

Keywords : Campylobacter coli; campylobacteriosis; hemorrhagic enteritis; bacteraemia; newborn.
