Review by : Kretschmer V*; Contreras M****
This article is interesting but the authors’ conclusion fails to satisfy. Both the donor and his daughter suffered from diarrhea 2 to 3 weeks before donation and were successfully treated with antibiotics. Blood donation was thus unacceptable. One should conclude that donors having suffered from unclear diarrhea for 3 to 4 weeks (not donors having reptiles) should be excluded.
