enteroinvasive Escherichia coli
Enteroinvasive strain of Escherichia coli penetrates gut mucosa and multiplies in colon epithelial cells, resulting in shigellosis-like changes of the mucosa. This strain produces a severe diarrhoeal illness that can resemble shigellosis except for the absence of vomiting and shorter duration of illness.
