Over a four months period (June to September, 2003) 111 stool samples from cases of acute diarrhoea were screened for Vibronaceae in department of microbiology, Smt. N. H. L. Municipal medical college, Ahmedabad. All the isolates were identified by standard laboratory technique. A total of 36 species belonging to Vibrionaceae were isolated. Phage typing of all these Vibronaceae were done at National Institute Of Cholera and Enteric Disease, Kolkata. Out of 36 isolates, 35 were Vibrio cholereae and only one was Vibrio mimicus.
