Rectal swab/stool specimens of 104 children with diarrhea and 31 healthy controls were processed by routine bacteriological methods. Escherichia coli was grown as predominant flora on primary culture in 32 patients and 7 controls. Three representative colonies from each of these were selected at random and tested for invasive character by their ability to produce keratoconjunctivitis in guinea-pig eye and invasion of HeLa cells. Isolates from only 2 patients and none of the controls were found to be invasive. Enteroinvasive E. coli (EIEC) appear to be a relatively uncommon cause of sporadic diarrhea among children in this region.
