Campylobacter Concisus and Acute Gastroenteritis in Children: Lack of Association


The role of Campylobacter concisus as a cause of acute gastroenteritis remains to be demonstrated. This prospective study includes 184 cases and 176 controls. It shows no evidence that C. concisus plays a role in acute gastroenteritis. Considering the very low prevalence in cases and controls, if there is an etiologic link, it would be moderate and difficult to demonstrate.
