Abstract

The evidence for an enteropathogenic role of Aeromonas spp. is still controversial. This review examines various parameters related to a causative role of Aeromonas and concludes that infraspecific subsets of strains with a particular array of enterotoxin genes are potential enteropathogens. The consequences for stool bacteriology are discussed.
