Yersinia enterocolitica

(redirected from Y. enterocolitica)

Yer·sin·i·a en·ter·o·co·li·ti·ca

a bacterial species that causes yersiniosis in humans; it is found in the feces and lymph nodes of sick and healthy animals, including humans, in material likely to be contaminated with feces, and in the cadavers of cattle, rabbits, hares, dogs, guinea pigs, horses, monkeys, pigs, and sheep; it replicates at refrigerator temperatures and has been associated with contamination of blood and blood products.

Yersinia enterocolitica

a ubiquitous species isolated from mammals, birds, and frogs, and from material contaminated by feces; it is transmitted by infected food and water and by person-to-person contact and causes yersiniosis in humans. Some strains produce a heat-stable exterotoxin.
