I am not involved in routine clinical bacteriology, so I can't 
give the correct answer.
We have in the CCUG some unusual isolates from ear (otitis):
3 recent cases of Vibrio cholerae (no toxin) - from Sweden !
6-8 cases of Vibrio alginolyticus
During 20 years I used to swim 4000 meters per week without 
insidence of ear infections.

Does anybody know what the name of the bacteria is?  Any info would be 
appreciated.
