Abstract

Many clinical laboratories are familiar with a sizeable group of "unserotypeable Yersinia enterocolitica" strains. Due to identification problems, this group may hide Y. bercovieri, Y. mollaretii, and Y. rohdei strains. We present a simple scheme to distinguish between pathogenic Y. enterocolitica and potentially nonpathogenic Y. enterocolitica-like strains.
