Campylobacter jejuni is a major cause of sporadic bacterial
diarrhea in the United States, with poultry the most
important source of infection. Markedly elevated levels of
antibodies recognizing C. jejuni typically indicate recent
or ongoing infection, even though stool cultures may be
negative. Neurological complications may follow C. jejuni
infection; approximately 30% of Guillain-Barre cases are
associated with recent C. jejuni infection. The basis of this
association is apparently molecular mimicry between C.
jejuni antigens and gangliosides of neuronal cells.
