Cholera in Brest, France

Abstract : This is a case report about a 54-year-old man with hypovolemic shock, due to diarrhea and major vomiting after his return from India. The isolation of Vibrio cholerae serogroup O1 (Ogawa serotype) explains this typical clinical presentation of cholera, seen in 10% of cholera cases only. The patient had co-infection with Vibrio cholerae and Campylobacter coli. Co-infections appear to be frequent in endemic areas. The purpose of this case report is to recall the relevance of Vibrio isolation when the clinical context is evocative (diarrhea on travel return, raw sea food consumption).
