Several members of a single family are ill with abdominal cramps and watery diarrhea. They just returned from visiting friends on the East Coast of the United States where they consumed raw oysters 48 hours ago.
A - likely diagnosis:
Vibrio parahemolyticus or Vibrio vulfinicus (both can cause)
Upps- Sorry about quick and impulsive response to that question
V. Parahaemolyticus -raw sea food with incubation period 5-94 hours( mean 24h.)
V.Vulnificus- oysters- cellulitis,gastroenteritis,septicemia(last one with preexisting liver desease)
Hope this is correct.
I agree with Mann. You are absolutely correct. I just read about those two bugs yesterday.
