Shigatoxigenic Escherichia coli (STEC) belonging to O serogroup O157 are predominantly reported in many parts of the world; this appears not to be the case in Australia, where other serogroups, especially O111, are more common. In this review, the incidence of human STEC infections in Australia from the first reported cases until today is reviewed. In this review, the extensive simultaneous studies on domestic food animals and the incidence of STEC in these animals are discussed in relation to human infections.
