Abstract The epidemiology and strain composition of household outbreaks of campylobacteriosis are poorly known. Putative outbreaks (N=91) comprising 3.2% of cases reported in Scotland during 15 months were identified. Of the 26 putative outbreaks with known strain composition, 89% shared the same strain, supporting their epidemiological relationship.
