Summer diarrhoea of infants in countries overseas has been associated to a marked extent with the presence of certain strains of Bact. coli which have now become antigenically defined. A small but significant number of cases in the Bantu has been examined in the present series. All the cases were admitted to hospital suffering from gastro-enteritis but were unselected except insofar as diarrhoea and vomiting were the presenting symptoms. Neither antigenically defined Bact. coli nor recognized pathogenic bacteria were isolated from these cases.
