Aquarium Science: Diagnosis of Chytridiomycosis in Pet African Dwarf Frogs
Symptoms ranged from cramping to severe and even bloody diarrhea. There were no fatalities. Bacteria transmission took many forms. For example, one woman cleaned a frog aquarium in the kitchen sink and subsequently bathed a 3-week-old infant in it, Mettee says. The researchers traced the infected frogs to a single breeding facility that houses , to 1 million African dwarf frogs and sells them.
But that doesn't stop health officials from weighing in on the topic.

James Hughes, an infectious-disease physician at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta and incoming president of IDSA, says these findings "should remind us of the importance of good hand hygiene in the kitchen and other areas of the house, especially if there are reptiles or amphibians in the household. Amphibians and reptiles can carry salmonella bacteria without appearing sick, says Patricia Griffin, a physician and chief of the enteric diseases epidemiology branch at CDC.
She notes that pet turtles, which were popular in the s, were found to expose people to salmonella. Small turtles have since been banned as pets, but some street sales continue, Mettee says.
Since March 31, an additional 57 cases of the salmonella subspecies have been reported. Mettee and her colleagues are now checking whether these cases also trace to frogs from the same breeding facility. View Comments. Sponsored Stories Powered By Outbrain. It's Still a Bad Idea. Jump to.
