Cholera

  • Abram S. Benenson

Abstract

Cholera is an acute epidemic dehydrating diarrhea, usually sudden in onset and, if not properly treated, fatal in as many as half those affected. While a similar clinical entity can be caused by other agents, the term is usually reserved for all diarrheal illnesses caused by Vibrio cholerae, and expanded to include those with only a few loose bowel movements.
