Traveler's Diarrhea.
Infect Dis Clin North Am. 2012 Sep; 26(3):691-706.ID

Abstract

Travelers' diarrhea (TD) is the most important health issue among international travelers. In high risk areas, 50-90% of travelers may experience an episode of TD. The risk of acquiring TD is influenced by factors such as the destination, duration of stay, standard of accommodation, type of travel, age of the traveler, and also by individual risk factors. Most cases of TD are caused by bacteria; treatment for TD are loperamide and antibiotics. Preventive strategies such as hygiene measures have limited impact. Prophylactic intake of antibiotics or vaccines to prevent from TD can be considered in special situations.
