Vibrio parahemolyticus has been isolated and reported from Japan, Korea, Shanghai, China, Singapore, Ceylon, Hawaii, Hong Kong, India, Taiwan and Thailand. In Japan, this organism has been associated with a gastroenteritis chiefly characterized by diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting and mild fever. The seasonal occurence of this illness, commonly known as Summer diarrhea, is evidenced by frequent food poisoning outbreaks from June to October.
