How is the infection diagnosed?

The diagnosis of cholera begins with a complete medical history and physical examination. Sometimes, the doctor can see the bacteria in a stool sample by using a microscope.

This container has a solution in it that allows the Vibrio cholerae bacteria to grow. If the organism grows, it can be identified, and the diagnosis can be made.
