HEPATITIS Reported cases of hepatitis have remained
at approximately the same level for the past three weeks.
The 942 cases for the week ending October 6, 1962, is
only moderately increased over the previous two weeks,
when 875 and 929 cases, respectively, were reported.



EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS

Leptospirosis North Carolina

Two cases of leptospirosis, in a serviceman and his
wife, have been reported from a military base in North
Carolina. Onset of disease occurred two and four weeks
i,:ii..vrin L an illness in the family dog.
On May 22, 1962, the wife of the serviceman had on-
set of severe headache, myalgia, and remitting temper-
ature to 1060 A diagnosis of influenza was made. By May
23, on admission to the hospital, symptoms had increased
to include severe retro-orbital pain, stiff neck, vomiting,
and marked weakness. Sulfisoxazole was started on the
day of admission and chloramphenicol the following day.
Lumbar puncture yielded a clear fluid with 241 white cells
and 67 red cells. A repeat spinal fluid examination on
May 26 showed 87 cells, predominantly neutrophiles, and
protein 59 mgms %. On May 29, 41 cells were found, pre-
dominantly lymphocytes. Urinalysis and the white blood
cell count were within normal limits. Final clinical diag-
nosis was aseptic meningitis. The patient gradually im-
proved and was discharged after two weeks.
On June 16, 1962, the patient's husband became ill
with malaise, fever, severe chills, weakness, and vomit-
ing. On admission to the hospital the same day, his pulse
was 108 and temperature 103.80. Upper abdominal tender-
ness was noted and the liver was palpated 2-3 cm. below
the right costal margin. Tetracycline was started on the
second day. During the first five days of illness he had a
remitting temperature as high as 105, with episodes of
delirium. Severe stiffness of the neck was noted on the
fifth day. Total white count was 10,000, with 96% polys.
Spinal fluid was normal. Urine showed a 2+ albumin and
some casts. Throughout his hospital course he experi-
enced severe myalgia and, when discharged on June 25,
still complained of pain in both knees. At no time was
there evidence of jaundice, melena, hematemesis, hema-
turia, conjunctivitis, or uveitis. Serum obtained on June


16 was negative for Leptospira antibodies, but on June 22
showed a reactive titer to Leptospira by the macroscopic
slide agglutination technique.
Investigation disclosed that early in May, 1962, the
family dog, a 5-month-old part German Shepherd, had
become ill. Symptoms of illness in the dog had consisted
of malaise, stiffness of the neck and back, vomiting,
weight loss, and frequent and excessive urination which
often soaked the lower chest and forelegs. The dog re-
covered. Shortly before onset of illness in this dog, an-
other dog one block away died of similar symptoms. A
number of guinea pigs at a nearby neighbor's home had
died of a similar illness during the same period.
The serviceman frequently contaminated his hands
with dog urine while caring for the sick dog. His wife
cleaned the backyard area where the dog was kept and
often walked about in her bare feet. Neither patient had
history of cuts or abrasions about the hands or feet at the
time of the dog's illness. None of their three small chil-
dren had handled the dog during the period of its illness,
nor did they become ill.
Convalescent sera obtained from the serviceman's
wife showed a titer of 1:100 for L. cancola by the micro-
scopic technique with live antigen. Convalescent sera
from the serviceman obtained July 3 showed a reactive
titer to L. canzcola of 1:200 by the microscopic technique.
Acute and convalescent sera in this patient showed a
rising titer to L. canicola with a high degree of crossing
to other serotypes by the macroscopic slide agglutination
technique. Convalescent sera obtained from the dog
showed a high reactive titer to L. canicola by the macro-
scopic slide agglutination technique and a rising titer in
specimens obtained on June 21 and July 9(1:400 to 1:800),
by the microscopic technique.
(Reported by Lt. Col. R. L. Miller, Medical Corps, and
Lt. Col. T. C. McChesney, Veterinary Corps, U. S. Army;
the North Carolina State Board of Health; and the Com-
municable Disease Center.)



Clostridium perfringens Food Poisoning California
On September 2, nine staff members and 29 of 45 pa-
tients in an institution for geriatric patients became ill
between 6:30 P.M. and 1:00 A.M. Symptoms included
diarrhea, occasional vomiting, and abdominal cramps.
Onset of illness occurred from six to twelve hours
after Sunday lunch, which consisted of a turkey salad
made with boiled turkey, lettuce, celery, and mayonnaise.
The frozen turkey used had been removed from the freezer
on the previous Friday at 4:00 P.M. and thawed during the
night. At 8:00 A.M. on September 1, the turkey was cut in
half and boiled for 11 hours. A salad was then prepared
which was immediately refrigerated. On Sunday, September
2, individual portions were made and served at the noon
meal.

Morbidity and Mortal


All stools examined from the patients were negative
for known pathogens. A sample of the mayonnaise ob-
tained for bacteriological examination was negative. A
direct smear from the cooked turkey meat showed numer-
ous short, broad, gram positive rods, which were bac-
teriologically identified as Clostridia, presumptively
C. perfringens. Counts of the egg yolk agar plates made


ity Weekly Report 315




from dilutions of the original material showed forty mil-
lion organisms per gram of turkey.
