V. parahemolyticus: Vibrio parahemolyticus is often associated with a history of seafood ingestion or wounds in sea water. Unfortunately, conventional antibiotic therapy does not shorten the course of hemolytic or dysenteric illness. As in all diarrheal diseases, the key is provision of adequate rehydration. If diarrhea persists more than 5 days, patients may benefit from treatment with tetracycline or a quinolone.
