Abstract

Foodborne campylobacteriosis is the most common cause of human bacterial enteritis in Germany. and are the main causative agents for enteric disease, but a number of other species are involved, including rare ones. These rare spp. are emerging zoonotic pathogens in humans due to increasing international movement of supplies, livestock and people. was first isolated from healthy abattoir workers in Switzerland and at first its pathogenic potential for humans was considered to be low. Recently, the first case of -associated human enteritis was reported in Canada. Here, we describe a case of mild -associated enteritis with subsequent asymptomatic excretion in a butcher. The isolate is available at the TLV strain collection (no. TP00333/18). This first reported case of human campylobacteriosis in Germany demonstrates the agent’s likely zoonotic pathogenicity.
