Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Cholera:
FDA Bad Bug Book (Excerpt)
Nature of Disease: Symptoms of Asiatic cholera may vary from a mild, watery diarrhea to an acute diarrhea, with characteristic rice water stools. Onset of the illness is generally sudden, with incubation periods varying from 6 hours to 5 days. Abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, dehydration, and shock; after severe fluid and electrolyte loss, death may occur. Illness is caused by the ingestion of viable bacteria, which attach to the small intestine and produce cholera toxin. The production of cholera toxin by the attached bacteria results in the watery diarrhea associated with this illness.

Cholera General: DBMD (Excerpt)
Cholera is an acute, diarrheal illness caused by infection of
the intestine with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. The
infection is often mild or without symptoms, but sometimes it
can be severe. Approximately one in 20 infected persons has severe
disease characterized by profuse watery diarrhea, vomiting, and
leg cramps. In these persons, rapid loss of body fluids leads
to dehydration and shock. Without treatment, death can occur within
hours. (Source: excerpt from Cholera General: DBMD)
