An unusual increase of Campylobacter concisus in stool cultures provoked an outbreak investigation at the University Hospital of Bern. No epidemiological links were found between cases, and the Campylobacter isolates were clonally unrelated. A change in culture conditions to a hydrogen-rich atmosphere enhancing growth of C. concisus was deemed responsible for this pseudo-outbreak.
