PROVISIONAL INFORMATION ON SELECTED NOTIFIABLE DISEASES IN THE UNITED STATES AND ON
DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES FOR WEEK ENDED DECEMBER 1, 1962


POLIOMYELITIS The week ending December 1, 1962,
accounted for 20 cases of poliomyelitis (18 paralytic). The
total for the comparable week in 1961 was 18 cases (13
paralytic).
Cases this week were of scattered origin, being re-
ported from fourteen States. Only Louisiana and West
Virginia reported as many as three cases. No new case
concentrations have been noted among the States reporting,
many delayed reports being evident.
Cumulative totals for poliomyelitis incidence through
the 48th week this year remain below those for any previ-
ous year. The comparable figures for 1962 and the previous
four years are shown in the following tabulation:

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS

Tularemia Wisconsin

During the past year, several tularemia infections
have occurred among Wisconsin mink ranchers, muskrat
farmers, and beaver trappers.

A mink rancher and his helper were hospitalized
with tularemia near Woodruff, Wisconsin, during March.
The owner of the ranch found a lesion on the dorsum of
his fourth finger. He developed a temperature of 103F,
with lymphangitis and adenitis. Serum tests were nega-
tive eight days after the first symptoms, but agglutinins
to tularemia developed to a titer of 1280 at 29 days, and
to 2560 at 35 days.
Three weeks later his helper was also hospitalized
with a large lesion on the left thumb and tenderness and
swelling in the axillary nodes. His serum had a titer of
160 to tularemia at 5 days and 5120 at 17 days. Both
patients recovered after treatment with streptomycin.
Two other workers on the mink ranch did not develop
clinical symptoms and tests on their sera were negative.
Several sick mink on the ranch were examined.
Seven out of ten mink sera tested showed high agglutinin
titers and the tularemia organism was isolated from the
mink tissues by the Communicable Disease Center,
Atlanta, Georgia. The most likely source of the infection
was believed to be frozen jackrabbit meat which had
been shipped in from out of State for mink food.

A seven-year-old New London, Wisconsin, boy was
infected during April after helping flesh a muskrat on his
father's fur farm. A lesion developed on the little finger
of his left hand, which he had also previously skinned
on a doorknob. He soon had a temperature of 103.80F,
with pain and enlargement in the lymph nodes in his
left arm. His serum had agglutinins to tularemia of 640
at 26 days, 2560 at 44 days, 640 at 66 days, and 320
after 78 days. He made a prompt recovery with treatment.
Tests on his father's serum showed a titer of 320,
although his only history of known infection was eight
years ago. The 12-year-old brother's serum had a titer
of 640, and the serum of a part-time helper on the fur
farm was 320. Neither of these two had a history of
known infection. The boy's mother had no history of
infection and her serum was negative.
During September, sera were collected from twelve
other muskrat fur farmers. Three of these twelve had ag-
glutinins, with titers of 40, 80, and 160, indicating past
infections. These were all negative to brucella.

During June a Conservation Department beaver trap-
per was hospitalized in Marshfield for four days with a
temperature that rose to 1040F, pain and swelling in
lymph nodes, and a lesion on the little finger of his


right hand. His serum had a titer of 40 at 11 days, which
increased to 320 at 27 days.

Salmonella Typhimurium Outbreak Humans and Cattle -
Wisconsin

An outbreak of Salmonella typhimurium, which in-
volved seven cows and six members of the family living
on the farm, has been reported from Door County,
Wisconsin.
The first illness occurred about October 1 in a two-
year-old Holstein cow which developed high fever and
explosive diarrhea, and died in a few days. On October 13,
a second cow in the herd of 79 developed high fever,
bloody diarrhea and anorexia, and also succumbed to the
illness. S. typhimurium was isolated from a stool culture.
Five additional cows subsequently developed diarrhea
and slight temperature but recovered.
The 38-year-old owner of the herd experienced a
four-day diarrheal illness between the time of the death
of the first cow and onset of illness in the second. His
wife and parents also experienced mild diarrheal ill-
nesses; however, two children, ages 8 and 11 years,
remained symptom free. S. typhimurium was isolated from
the stool specimens of all six family members.
No new animals had been introduced into the herd
during the previous year. Most of the grain for feed is
raised on the farm, although some ground corn and miner-
als are added as supplements. Samples of the feed were
negative by culture. Sanitary conditions on the farm were
reported to be excellent.
No other known cases have occurred either in cattle
or humans in the county this year.
A similar S. typhimurium outbreak, involving six
bovine and two human cases, occurred in Wisconsin in
September, 1958 (MMWR, Vol. 8, No. 7, 1959).

Nursing Service, Door County, Wisconsin, and Josef
Prezzler, M.D., Director, Bureau ofCommunicable Disease,
Wisconsin State Board of Health.)


Clostridium perfringens Food Poisoning Philadelphia

On the evening of October 20, 140 children and 15
employees of a city welfare center became ill with severe
diarrhea and abdominal pain, but little nausea or vomiting.
The suspect meal, a noon dinner, was consumed by 170
persons. It consisted of roast beef, gravy, vegetables and
beverage. Symptoms developed between 8 and 12 hours
after eating. Clostridium perfringens organisms in large
numbers were isolated from both the roast beef and the
gravy; none were isolated from the vegetables.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


The roast beef and gravy had been prepared the day
previous to the meal and allowed to cool in open trays
without refrigeration for approximately 22 hours. A few
hours before serving, the meat and gravy had been warmed
separately at low temperatures in large pans.
