ABSTRACT: The study included a bacteriological analysis of 687 diarrhoeal stool samples with over a period of one year with special attention to Aeromonas species. Fifty-three strains of Aeromonas (7.7 percent) were isolated along with other enteric pathogens. Among the media used Ampicillin Blood agar proved to be most useful yielding 88.67 percent of Aeromonas isolates. Biochemical speciation identified A. caviae to be predominant biotype (83.8 percent). The pathogenic potential of A. hydrophila as correlated to the presence of cellular exudate.
