Diarrhoeal illness is manifested as watery diarrhoea or loose stool and mucus with or without blood. Campylobacter spp. act as one of the important bacterial causes of diarrhoea in children. Awareness about the presence of these organisms is scant in Thrissur region of Kerala, India. Hence, we herein present a case of campylobacter diarrhoea in an infant that was preliminarily identified by Gram stain examination of stool sample and further confirmed by culture and multiplex polymerase chain reaction.
