Vibrio cholerae Infection, more commonly known as Cholera, is an intestinal infection that causes unpleasant symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting. It is most commonly contracted by consuming water from a contaminated source. It can also be transmitted in areas with poor sanitary conditions and can be ingested by eating undercooked seafood. The condition can become deadly if a patient becomes dangerously dehydrated. This can happen when medical assistance is not given in time. Hydration is the best treatment and needs to be done with IV fluids from a medical clinic.

1. Symptoms

Most cases of cholera are mild, and there are no symptoms. In more severe cases patients present with a sudden onset of watery diarrhea. This is often accompanied by vomiting that lasts several hours. Due to the rapid loss of body fluids from both diarrhea and vomiting, patients end up dehydrated. Muscle cramps and shock often follow without treatment.
