Abstract

We report a concurrent case of infection with non-O157 Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strain in an 8-month-old child. Laboratory and epidemiological investigations indicated child exposure to contaminated sheep meat following the Muslim feast of sacrifice (Eid al-Adha). Microbiological and molecular typing confirmed that the ovine strain O52:H45 (stx1+, eae-, hlyA-) was the causal agent. This is the first documented case of human infection to this STEC serotype.
