Abstract

We present a case of concurrent infections by Campylobacter jejuni, Giardia intestinalis and Hepatitis E virus acquired during a 5-days travel to India by an Italian traveller. Professionals responsible for pre- and post-travel care should underline food and water precautions and prescribe an adequate diagnostic work-up in symptomatic patients.
