There is often immunologic susceptibility to autism, either genetic or related to environmental toxins. Two of the most important factors that lead to ingrowth or overgrowth of potential pathogens are diet and exposure to antimicrobial agents. This presentation will review a variety of organisms under consideration, found in stool and mucosal biopsies; and viral or bacterial infections during pregnancy. Improvement has been noted with various antimicrobial agents.
