  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A severe outbreak of hemorrhagic colitis occurred at a kindergarten in Saitama, Japan in Octorber, 1990. Children who were affected by enterohemorrhagic E. coli O157: H7 infection showed apparent bradycardia as well as severe bloody diarrhea, generalized convul-sion, or hemolytic uremic syndrome.

Cardiac involvement such as bradycardia observed inthe patients of this outbreak has not been described in previous reports about EHEC infection, while bradycar-dia has been well known in typhoid fever due to sal-monella typhosa infection.
