Abstract

Enteroinvasive Escherichia coli (EIEC) is an important agent of pediatric diarrhea and dysentery in developing countries. We report a life-threatening severe dysentery case due to EIEC in a malnourished 4-month-old male, native Indian infant co-infected with rotavirus. The severe gastrointestinal bleeding anemia and hypovolemic shock was successfully treated with IV blood transfusions, rehydration and antibiotic therapy.
