Name
Yersiniosis
Description
Yersiniosis (non-plague) is an infectious disease caused by two species, Yersinia enterocolitica and Y. pseudotuberculosis, which is zoonotic, capable of being transmitted from infected animals to man. Major clinical forms include acute gastroenteritis and mesenteric lymphadenitis, which are often accompanied by fever and abdominal pain. Routes of transmission include fecal-oral spread via ingestion of contaminated food as the most common route and consumption of contaminated water supplies. Yersiniosis occurs more commonly in regions with temperate rather than tropical or subtropical climates.
