The discovery of Vibrio Cholerae was made by Pacini in 1854, who found curved bacteria in intestinal contents of cholera victims. However, Robert Koch, who studied cholera in Egypt during 1883, demonstrated that the cholerae disease was caused by a comma-shaped organism, which he named Kommabazillen. This work by Koch initially gained alot of attention and overshadowed the work of Pacini. For several decades, the name Vibrio Comma was also used. Finally, the pioneering work of Pacini was recognized and the name was changed back to Vibrio Cholerae.
