Travellers' diarrhoea is defined as the passage of three or more unformed stools each day either during or shortly after travel, or any number of such stools when accompanied by fever, abdominal cramps or vomiting.(1) Although more than 30% of travellers to developing countries can expect to have a bout of diarrhoea, most of these episodes will be mild and self-limiting with a mean duration of approximately four days.(2)
