Methods: This is a review study in which to find the required articles we searched through related databases like PubMed and Elsevier. Following keywords were used in this regard: bacteria species, growth conditions, virulence factors, diagnosis, treatment of shigellosis. Obtained data were categorized, analyzed and divided into different sections. Results: Findings about bacterial morphology, growth properties, antigen patterns, clinical symptoms and diagnosis of Shigellosis, treatment, outbreak prevention in the crises and view points of some experts were separately classified.
