Human infections attributed to P. shigelloides are almost exclusively restricted to two clinical settings. The most common presentation is a watery diarrheal illness most often found in individuals with a history of fresh water contact, seafood consumption, exposure to amphibia or reptiles or travel to developing countries. The second well-recognized syndrome associated with P. shigelloides is septicemia, often accompanied by meningitis.
