Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Yersiniosis:

FDA Bad Bug Book (Excerpt)

Name of Disease: Yersiniosis: There are 3 pathogenic species in the genus Yersinia, but only Y. enterocolitica and Y. pseudotuberculosis cause gastroenteritis. To date, no foodborne outbreaks caused by Y. pseudotuberculosis have been reported in the United States, but human infections transmitted via contaminated water and foods have been reported in Japan. Y. pestis, the causative agent of "the plague," is genetically very similar to Y. pseudotuberculosis but infects humans by routes other than food.

Nature of Disease: Yersiniosis is frequently characterized by such symptoms as gastroenteritis with diarrhea and/or vomiting; however, fever and abdominal pain are the hallmark symptoms. Yersinia infections mimic appendicitis and mesenteric lymphadenitis, but the bacteria may also cause infections of other sites such as wounds, joints and the urinary tract.

Yersinia enterocolitica: DBMD (Excerpt)

Common symptoms in children are fever, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, which is often bloody. Symptoms typically develop 4 to 7 days after exposure and may last 1 to 3 weeks or longer. In older children and adults, right-sided abdominal pain and fever may be the predominant symptoms, and may be confused with appendicitis. In a small proportion of cases, complications such as skin rash, joint pains, or spread of bacteria to the bloodstream can occur. (Source: excerpt from Yersinia enterocolitica: DBMD)
