We described six newborns hospitalized with Vibrio cholerae 01 infection, four serotype Inaba and two serotype Ogawa. Five of the six cases had the characteristic aqueous (watery) diarrhea. In epidemic areas a risk history with bottle formula feeding (with unboiled water) and/or household contacts are indicators for further evaluation in search for cholera in this age group.
