Four hundred and one consecutive diarrhoea patients and 101 adult patients without diarrhoea were enrolled for this study from a health centre in Lusaka. Campylobacter was isolated from 6% of patients with acute diarrhoea. However, non of these were seen in control group. Further studies are being carried out to determine the importance of Campylobacter species with other bacterial pathogens. It will also be interesting to see its impact and association with human immuno deficiency virus in this region.
