Three E. coli cases in Brunswick, Georgia, Under Investigation

Three presumed cases of E. coli food poisoning are under investigation by Glynn County health officials, with one case already confirmed. So far, a connection among the cases has not been discovered.

The confirmed case is a 68-year-old Brunswick man who was hospitalized in early August. Much of his large intestine has been removed, and his kidneys have failed. The man’s daughter, Delaney La Rosa, has said that her father is on life support.

Initial symptoms of E.coli food poisoning infection include severe abdominal cramps and watery diarrhea. The diarrhea may become bloody and can lead to dehydration. Symptoms generally resolve in 5-10 days, but serious complications may ensue. Children and the elderly are at greatest risk of developing complications.

Complications of E. coli infection may include Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), a serious medical condition characterized by destruction of red blood cells, damage to the lining of blood vessel walls, and in severe cases, kidney failure.
