POLIOMYELITIS During the current week, Texas again
dominated the national reporting of poliomyelitis with 9
cases, 8 paralytic. Only 2 other cases, both paralytic,
were recorded in the country.
This week 5 counties from Texas reported one case
each while Frio Counry reported 4 cases. These four
cases occurred in the small town of Dilley (population
2,100) located between San Antonio and Laredo in South
Texas. All had onsets of illness during the last week in
May and two of the four cases were fatal. This situation
was first brought tothe attention of the Texas State Health
Depart .t 30. By the evening of May 31, the en-

Mass immunization programs have recently been com-
pleted in San Antonio, Bexar County, where 589,000 doses
of Type I oral vaccine were given and in Laredo, Webb
County, where 62,000 doses were administered.

HEPATITIS The number of hepatitis cases reported for
the 22nd week ending June 2 fell abruptly to 906 from the
previous week's report of 1,098. The hepatitis cases
reported for this week represent the smallest number re-
ported since the 905 cases for the week ending December
31, 1960.
The cumulative totals for the first 22 weeks of 1962
and the previous 4 years are shown below:


1962 1961 1960 1959 1958
28,223 38,096 17,179 10,666 7,279


MEASLES Approximately 370,000 cases of measles have
been reported during the first 22 weeks of 1962. Although
this is somewhat higher than for the comparable period
last year, it is still lower than might be expected from
analysis of the pattern over the last ten years. During this
span, the annual number of cases occurring over the nation
exceeded 600,000 during 1952, 1954, 1956, and 1958, while
the intervening years maintained an average close to
500,000 cases. Since 1959, the annual case incidence has
remained under 450,000. It is expected that approximately
500,000 cases will be reported in 1962.


EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS


Rickettsiolpox Massachusetts

A 47-year-old salesman was admitted to a Massachu-
setts hospital on March 26 with a complaint of a fever of
unknown origin. About 10 days prior to admission, on
March 15 or 16, the patient noted a pimple on the medial
aspect of his right lower leg. A day or two later the
patient began having chills and fever which subsequently
recurred each afternoon. On the 22nd of March the patient
noticed several small red spots on his arms. More ap-
peared over the next few days. The original leg lesion
also became larger. Temperature taken during a severe
chill on the afternoon of March 23 was 1030 F.
The patient had been in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on
business from March 4 through March 9. In the course of
his trip he cleaned a rug for his exhibition booth. While he
was removing excelsior from the rug, his pants rose ex-
posing the skin of his leg for a small area above his
sock. This was approximately the area of skin where the
original lesion developed. A mouse had been seen in his
room at about that time though the patient could not recall
a mite bite.
A complement fixation test with grouped rickettsial
antigen containing predominantly Rickettsia akari was
positive in a 1:10 dilution. This, along with clinical data,
was thought to be highly suggestive of a diagnosis of

rickettsialpox. The patient was discharged, improved on
Chloramphenicol therapy.
(Reported by Toseph P. Reardon, Epidemiologist, Division
of Communicable Diseases, Department of Public Health,
Massachusetts.)

Editor's Note:
Rickettsialpox was first recognized and reported fol-
lowing an outbreak in 1946 in New York City. Additional
cases of rickettsialpox were reported from 1946-1956 from
a relatively few ar#as in the United States including New
York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and West
Hartford, Connecticut.
The vector of the disease, the mouse mite Alloderman-
yssus sanguineus, has been found in a number of areas
including Washington, D. C., New York City, Boston,
Champaign, Illinois, Salt Lake City, and West Hartford,
Connecticut.
If the exposure in the case reported above did indeed


occur in Pittsburgh, this adds another U.S. city- to the
five where rickettsialpox has occurred.



Hospital-Related Staphylococcus Infection Ohio

Over the past several years, the Ohio Department of
Health, in cooperation with several local health depart-
ments, has studied the problem of hospital-related staphy-
lococcal infections. Arrangements were made with several
health departments for nursing visits to obtain data from
persons with lesions from which staphylococcus type
80/81 was isolated. These visits were made 2 to 16 weeks
(usually 3 to 4 weeks) after the onset of illness in the in-
dex case. Cases were called hospital-related if the patient
or family member had been hospitalized within a six month
period prior to the onset of the staphylococcal disease, or
if the disease had developed during hospitalization. As
shown in the following table, approximately 60% of staphy-
