Abstract

We describe septicemia due to Vibrio cholerae 0139 Bengal, the newly described causative agent of cholera, in a child who also had simultaneous intestinal infection with Shigella boydii. Because V. cholerae 0139 is capsulated, its propensity to cause extraintestinal infection is stressed.
