Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli are still important cause of diarrhoea in children as well as in adults population. In this study 550 cases of diarrhoea were studied for prevalence of enteropathogenic E. coli using culture and serological methods and final confirmation of strain was done from Central Research Institute, Kasauli. Out of 550 cases 385 strains of E. coli were isolated with isolation rate of typable strain being 70 percent. Common serotypes were 086, 055,0111, 028, 020, and rare strains like 0132, 0114, 0152, 0116, 088 were also reported from faecal specimen of diarrhoeal origin. Strains reported for the first time in central India were 0114, and 068.
