Title: Botulism In Brazil
Author: de Melo Serrano A.
Abstract: Until recently, only two scientific papers, published in 1958, have recognized Clostridium botulinum as the agent of a case of food poisoning in humans in Brazil. This virtual absence of botulism in humans has caused much discussion, due to the confirmed existence of spores of the microorganism in marine sediment from the Brazilian coast, as well as in seafood and in Brazilian soil. In addition, botulism is known to occur in mammals and fowl. In 1986, however, two outbreaks of human botulism occurred which showed the existence of this disease in the country. © 1990.
