Campylobacter coli Outbreak in Men Who Have Sex with Men, Quebec, Canada, 2010–2011
Campylobacter coli is the second most common species that causes human Campylobacter infections (1–3). Few studies have characterized the differences between the epidemiology and the disease of C. coli infections in comparison to C. jejuni subsp. jejuni infections (1–3). However, many studies have reported a higher macrolide resistance in C. coli than in C. jejuni (1–3). Few C. coli outbreaks have been reported to date (4,5).
