One exception is a 1999 study conducted in Sao Paulo Brazil.

The case–case study design is a potentially useful tool for infection preventionists during outbreak or cluster investigations. This column clarifies terminology related to case–case, case–control, and case-case-control study designs. Examples of practical applications of the case–case study design include determining risk factors for health care–onset versus community-onset infections, or antibiotic-resistant versus antibiotic-susceptible infections.

Background Campylobacter is a leading cause of gastroenteritis across the globe caused by the ingestion of contaminated food, water, or contact with animals carrying Campylobacter bacteria. The resulting disease, campylobacteriosis, is usually self-limiting, but cases may develop post-infectious sequelae (PIS) such as gastrointestinal disorders, neurological disorders, and joint disorders. The objective of this study was to estimate a crude incidence rate for PIS among Campylobacter cases in Mar...
