Abstract

In Europe only a few cases of infantile botulism have been identified. A two month old infant fell ill with feeding difficulties and profound general weakness. Clostridium botulinum and botulinal toxin, the causative agents, were isolated from the patients stool. We describe the typical clinical symptoms and the investigations confirming the diagnosis.
