Infection caused by Escherichia coli

The Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria is one of the most common causes of human illness. It forms part of the digestive flora and is always present in faecal matter.

By little known mechanisms it episodically causes disease in humans, either due to mutations that make it resistant to our body’s control mechanisms, or because it is present in places it should not normally be, such as the urinary tract or in the blood itself.
