Campylobacter cryaerophila was recovered from a single specimen of a 35-year-old homosexual man who presented with intermittent diarrhea for 4 to 6 months. The isolate was identified as C. cryaerophila by using biochemical reactions and confirmed by DNA-DNA hybridization and gas-liquid chromatograph profiles. The base composition of DNA of the isolate was found to be 31.1 ± 1 mol% (G+C). C. cryaerophila was previously reported to be associated with bovine and porcine abortions in animals. We believe this is the first report of recovery of C. cryaerophila from human stool.
