PROVISIONAL INFORMATION ON SELECTED NOTIFIABLE DISEA
DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES FOR WEEK ENDED


POLIOMYELITIS Thirty-one cases of poliomyelitis,
24 paralytic, were reported for the 31st week of the year
ending August 4. Consistent with an expected seasonal
increase, this represents the largest number of cases to
be reported for any one week in 1962. For the comparable
week in 1961, 36 total cases (27 paralytic) were reported.
Although the total of reported cases this year is less
than in any previous years, paralytic cases slightly ex-
ceed the experience for the comparable period last year.
Cumulative totals through the 31st week for 1962 and the
past four years are show in the following tabulation:

Paralytic 250 239 680 1600 622
Total 327 362 948 2451 1254

Of the 31 cases this week, ten were from Texas and
five from Illinois. The remaining 16 cases were reported
by 11 States, none of which reported more than two cases.
The Texas cases, reported from seven different
counties, bring the total for the year in that State to 146,

of which 117 are paralytic. Mass Type I oral vaccine F fgore 2
programs are proceeding throughout the State. To date, HEPATITIS MORBIDITY BY STATE
1st Quarter 1962
nearly four million persons in 38 counties have been Rate per 100,000 population
immunized.
Of the five Illinois cases, only one was paralytic.
This paralytic case was from Chicago and represented .- r
the third such case in that city this year. All three are M
children under two years of age and all experienced on-
set of disease since June 14. Type I poliovirus has been 1 '0: i
isolated from two of the cases and Type IIl poliovirus
from the third.

HEPATITIS As of the current week, 35,317 cases of o.
viral hepatitis have been reported in 1962. This cumula-
tive total is 2"' below that for the comparable period in a u
1961, but still represents the second highest year of
reported hepatitis in the United States. The West North 2nd Quarter 1962
Central States of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska
have in particular had striking decreases from 1961.
The Mountain States, with the exception of Arizona and .. ,
Colorado, have also had a reduced incidence.
The peak incidence in 1962 was reached in early
February. (See Figure 1). There has been a continued
decline over the subsequent 27 weeks. The smallest r
number of cases was reported during the week ending ~-.
July 7, and this may represent the seasonal low.
Attack rates in individual States showed a general ,.,
decrease during the second quarter of 1962. (See Figure -.
2). This is in contrast with the same quarter of 1961
when high rates continued to prevail.

EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS

Salmonella thompson Enteritis from Commercial Cake
Mixes Canada

Reported during June from Saskatchewan and New-
foundland were cases of Salmonella thompson among
individuals who had ingested egg-containing commercial
cake mixes.
Early in June, a series of cases of gastroenteritis
were reported from a highway camp near Kamsack, Sas-
katchewan. From stools of three of the patients, S.
thompson was recovered. Samples of a recently baked
cake, as well as all samples of cake mixes in the camp
kitchen, yielded S. thompson; two samples yielded S.
heidelberg as well.
In St. John's, Newfoundland, isolation of S. thompson
from a two-year-old child hospitalized with a febrile
enteritis prompted epidemiological investigation. The
mother indicated that three days prior to the child being
admitted to the hospital, she had prepared and baked a
white cake mix (egg-containing). The child had been
given the mixing bowl to lick. Cake mix of the same


brand name purchased in St. John's was found positive
for S. thompson.
(Reported in the Epidemiological Bulletin, July 13, 1962,
of the Canadian Department of National Health and
Welfare.)


Tick-bite Paralysis North Carolina

A 10-year-old boy residing in eastern North Carolina
noted a tick-bite in the left axilla on May 3. The tick was
partially removed. The next day abdominal pain and
listlessness were noted. On May 6, weakness was ex-
treme and paralysis was noted in the legs. Spinal tap on
May 8 was normal as was the white count; temperature
was 1020. On May 11, a foreign body reaction was noted
in the left axilla. This area was opened and a small,
dark piece of material, the tick head, came out with the
exudate. The boy was dramatically improved by that
evening and by May 13 he was completely well. Rash was
not noted during hospitalization. Complement fixation
