Egyptian village children in the first six months of life, while exposed to a highly endemic environment and experiencing a higher incidence of diarrheal disease, were less frequently infected with Shigella organisms than were older children. Shigella organisms were not recovered from infants in the neonatal period even during seasons of high incidence of infection in older subjects. Shigella infections were most prevalent during the second and third years of life.
