We report on a 30-year-old Dutch marine who was stationed in Eritrea and who was repatriated because of acute paralytic small-bowel ileus. The disease course was short and without signs of infection. After diagnostic work-up, we diagnosed Yersinia enterocolitica infection. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of Yersinia enterocolitica infection causing paralytic ileus in an adult.
