Abstract

Aeromonas species produce an array of virulence factors, and the pathogenesis of Aeromonas infections is therefore complex and multifactorial. Aeromonas-associated gastroenteritis is especially a problem in young children. The potential involvement of enterotoxins in the pathogenesis of Aeromonas infections is discussed.
