[Botulism in the infant. Presentation of a case].

[Article in Spanish]


First case reported in our country with infant botulism is described in a 5 month old infant. Clinical and electrodiagnostic abnormalities are the only relatively specific findings in infant botulism, which were seen in this infant, but it requires isolation of "C. botulinum" for diagnosis confirmation. "C. botulinum" type B spores were identified in stool samples from this infant. It has been described frequently isolation of "C. botulinum" from honey specimens that had been fed to infants who subsequently developed infant botulism. They are now studying honey samples with appropriate methods (MDL-10), obtained from alimentation of this infant.
