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.
