PROVISIONAL INFORMATION ON SELECTED NOTIFIABLE DISEASES IN THE UNITED '
DEATHS IN SELECTED CITIES FOR WEEK ENDED MAY 26. 1962


/


POLIOMYELITIS A total of 7 cases of poliomyelitis,
4 paralytic, was reported during the week ending May 26.
Texas accounted for one paralytic and 2 nonparalytic
cases, Oklahoma for one nonparalytic case, and Wyoming,
Missouri, and California for one paralytic case each.
The 2 nonparalytic cases from Texas are in Bexar
County (San Antonio). A total of 12 cases, 10 paralytic,
has been reported this year from this county. Type I
poliovirus has been isolated from 5 of these patients.
A community-wide immunization program in San Antonio,
utilizing the CDC epidemic reserve oral vaccine, began
on May 31.


No additional cases have been reported from Webb
County, Texas. The occurrence of 8 paralytic cases in
1962 with Type I isolates from 3 patients prompted a
community-wide oral vaccine program there on May 27-28.
HEPATITIS There were 1,098 cases of hepatitis re-
ported for the 21st week ending May 26. This is the third
successive week in 1962 in which the total number of
cases has been below 1,100.
TYPHOID FEVER Nine cases of typhoid fever were
reported from Montana during the last week. These cases
represent isolations obtained in March and April from
carriers and cases in a mental institution.

EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORT

Botulism Massachusetts

On May 24, a 65-year-old male was admitted to a
Boston hospital with a four day history of increasing
weakness, dizziness, and difficulty in swallowing and
speaking. Physical examination revealed neurological
abnormalities, weakness, and difficulty in breathing.
A diagnosis of botulism was made and treatment initiated
including botulinus antitoxin.
A tracheostomy and the use of a mechanical res-
pirator were necessary. After an initial downhill course,
the patient is slowly recovering.
The patient, his wife, a daughter and a son-in-law
are home-canned mushrooms at noon on May 19, that had
been prepared by the wife in September 1961. Though


she has prepared mushrooms for years, this was the first
time she boiled them in oil during their preparation. The
mushrooms had been obtained from a field where she had
obtained them previously. Four jars were prepared at this
time, one having been used earlier without incident.
The family remarked that the mushrooms they ate on
May 19 tasted rancid. The patient ate approximately 15
mushrooms; the others ate lesser amounts and they were
not ill, except for the son-in-law who had transient diar-
rhea during the evening of May 22.
Mushrooms from the incriminated jar were not avail-
able, but the remaining two jars were obtained for lab-
oratory examinations which are currently in progress.
(Reported by Dr. Nicholas J. Fiumara, Director, Division
of Communicable Diseases, Massachusetts Department
of Public Health.)

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


The figure presents viral hepa-
titis cases over and under age
20 by week of report from
April 1961 through the 20th
week ending May 19, 1962.
The seasonal fluctuation in
the under 20 age group is
readily apparent, while there
appears to be little seasonal
variation in the over 20 age
group. The sharp rise in adult
cases during the ltih week of
1962 is due largely to the in-
creased number of adult cases
in the Pacific Coast States.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


INTERNATIONAL NOTES QUARANTINE MEASURES
Smallpox Europe
During the past five months there have been eight
separate importations of smallpox into the United King-
dom, Germany, and Poland.
Five separate importations from Pakistan resulted
in 70 cases and 26 deaths in England and Wales. British
health officials declared all areas free of smallpox on
May 20.
Two importations, one from Liberia, the other from
India resulted in 37 cases and three deaths in Germany
and Switzerland. The infected areas were declared free
of smallpox in March and April.
Nowy Port in Poland was declared infected May 4
following the arrival of an Indian freighter with smallpox
cases aboard. In addition to the cases on board ship,
3 cases have been reported among port officials. This
is the only area in Europe which remains infected at
this time.

Poliomyelitis Mexico

Through May 12, 130 clinical cases of polio have
been reported in Mexico in 1962. These include 52 cases
in March, 36 in April, and 10 in May through the 12th.
The largest numbers of cases have occurred in Nuevo
Leon (21), Coahuila (15), Sonora (12), Sinaloa (10), and
Tamaulipas (10). All these states, with the exception of
Sinaloa, border the southern U. S. states of Texas, New
Mexico, and Arizona.
(From Weekly Epidemiological Report of Pan American
Sanitary Bureau, May 23, 1962).
Influenza
The A2 strains received by the World Influenza Cen-
ter from Czechoslovakia, U.S.S.R., Norway, Netherlands,
and Japan, like those received from Finland and France,
appear to be closer to A2/Singapore/1/57 than to A2/
England/1/61.
(Reported by the World Influenza Center, April 24, 1962,
in the May 18, 1962, Weekly Epidemiological Record of
the World Health Organization).
