Traveller's diarrhoea

Up to 80% of diarrhoea cases in travellers are caused by bacteria.The most important causative agents are ETEC, campylobacter and salmonella.Good hand hygiene and avoidance of suspect foods as far as possible are the most important preventive measures.Rehydration and rest are the cornerstones of treatment.Antimicrobial therapy is warranted if the symptoms are severe and in patients who due to their primary disease are more prone to complications than usual.
