Enteropathogenic E.coli (EPEC) was detected in 13.04 percent (347 out of 2661) patients with diarrhoea who attended the hospital attached to the Dayanand Medical College, Ludhiana during May 1984 to May 1987. The predominant serotypes encountered were 055, 0128, 0125, 0126, 0114, 0119, 086, 0111, 0112 and 0124. The disease incidence had a positive correlation (r-0.633) with mean maximum temperature and the negative correlation (r-0.604) with relative humidity suggesting its higher incidence under conditions of high temperature and low humidity. High prevalence of EPEC infection was noticed in male infants (52.16%) as compared to females (12.68%). EPEC isolates were mostly susceptible to gentamicin, nalidixic acid, cephalothin, furazolidine and neomycin.
