Campylobacter laridis: first clinical isolation and identification of reservoir in Chile

Campylobacter laridis: first clinical isolation and identification of reservoir in Chile

The first case of diarrhoea caused by Campylobacter laridis to be diagnosed in Chile is reported. The patient worked in a Santiago butchery processing fowls, and he often ate chicken. In a search for natural reservoirs of infection locally, various seabirds were examined as it is known that gulls harbour C. laridis. Positive cultures were obtained from 1 each of Phalacrocorax olivaceus (olivaceous or neo-tropical gull), P. atriceps (blue-eyed shag) and Larus dominicanus (kelp or southern black-backed gull). Further studies are required to determine the epidemiology of C. laridis infection in Chile.E.M. Scrimgeour.
