Bacterial Toxins

There are three main forms of bacterial enteric toxin:

Enterotoxin producing excess fluid secretion into the gut (cholera and some types of Escherichia co/i) Cytotoxin causing inflammation and mucosal damage (shigella and enterohemorrhagic E. co/i) Neurotoxin affecting the nervous system (botulism and staphylococcal toxin)

Some E. co/i strains produce toxin; these are dealt with under Invasive Bacteria. Red kidney bean, scombrotoxin and other fish toxins, and heavy metal poisoning are dealt with elsewhere in this book.
