Bloody Diarrhea

Bloody diarrhea is a widespread disease among children, especially between spring and autumn season by infection with E.coliO157:H7.


Symptoms of infection with  E.coliO157:H7 includes fever, severe diarrhea usually combined with blood, irritation and hemolytic uremic syndrome  that leads to kidney failure followed by a blood clot, and heart attacks cause death.


Diagnosis of bloody diarrhea done for detection of E.coliO157:H7 by stool examination, stool culture test and serological testes.


The best antibiotics used for treatment of E.coli  O157:H7 were imipenem and meropenem.

We should avoid treatment with beta-lactam antibiotic group because E.coli O157:H7 produces enzyme called beta-lactamase that can break the beta lactam ring in the antibiotics so, it becomes ineffective, and then we called the bacteria were resistant to the antibiotic.
