Article Title: Definitive Identification of Laribacter hongkongensis Acquired in the United States
Abstract: Laribacter hongkongensis is a potential emerging pathogen associated with community acquired gastroenteritis and traveler's diarrhea. We report the isolation of L. hongkongensis from the stool of a patient who had no travel history outside the United States. The organism was identified by phenotypic tests, mass spectrometry and gene sequencing.
