Abstract

About 20, or more, cases of Y. enterocolitica septicaemia are known, of which 5 have occurred in France. The case now reported emphasises the main characteristics of the illness with its predilection for weakened individuals, the Gram negative septicaemia and the painfully enlarged liver. The organism was isolated on 5 occasions from blood cultures, it was also found in the pus from the abcesses in the liver. The latter are invariably necrotic and multiple and rarely respond to antibiotics. The disease has a most serious prognosis. © 1973.
