But the emergence and dissemination of multidrug-resistant strains of Shigella has complicated the therapeutic management of cases of shigellosis
, especially when the target population is profoundly immunocompromised.
According to Carl Zimmer in "A Planet of Viruses," d'Herelle made this breakthrough while studying an outbreak of Shigellosis
among French soldiers.
