Antibiotics are the principal element in the treatment of TD and are effective in cases caused by bacterial pathogens that are susceptible to the particular antibiotic prescribed. Adjunctive agents used for symptomatic control may also be recommended. TD continues to be a worldwide disease that affects millions of tourists. Constant developments in prevention and discovery of new pathogens responsible for TD continually change our understanding of the disease. Antibacterial agents are remarkably effective for TD therapy.
