Abstract: In October 1968, outbreaks of acute gastroenteritis occurred among five Japanese sightseeing groups during their stay in Hong Kong and/or on their homeward return flight. Bacteriologic examination of fecal specimens obtained from 62 of 144 tour members of the third group led to the isolation of 14 Vibrio parahaemolyticus strains with hemolytic activity. No enteric pathogens were isolated from three patients of the fifth party who also had symptoms. As ill persons were rare in the other groups and those who had diarrhea already recovered at the time of the inspection, no fecal examination was performed on them. The history of food consumption suggested that raw sea food served in restaurants in Hong Kong may have been the vehicle of infective agent. / 昭和43年10月,日本人観光団5団体に,香港に滞在中あるいは引きつづき航空機で帰国中に急性胃腸炎が発生した.東京空港検疫所で帰着時まだ軽微な症状を示していた第3群144名中の62名について検便を行ない,うち14名から神奈川現象陽性腸炎ビブリオを検出した.第5群にも3名の有症者がいたがこれからは病原細菌を検出し得なかった.原因食は香港の水上レストランなどで摂った生の海産物と推定された.この事例の考察にあたり,神奈川現象陽性の本菌が東南アジアの港湾泥土から検出されたこと,および日本以外の国々での本菌ないしその類似菌による食中毒発生例が文献によって概観された.
