Abstract

We describe a case of gastroenteritis caused by . The pathogenic potential of has yet to be elucidated. Recent studies indicate an association with enteric disease in immunocompromised patients and inflammatory bowel disease in children. Molecular identification methods may be necessary for identifying certain species because of phenotypic similarity.
