In brief: Stool culture

Symptoms include fever, chills, diarrhea, perhaps nausea and vomiting.
Diarrhea may be bloody. Stool culture is required to make the diagnosis. In most cases it will resolve on its own and no treatment is necessary. Young children and the chronically ill should be treated with antibiotics.
