EPIDEMIOLOGIC NOTES


Tuloremia


A total of 8 cases of tularemia was reported for the
week ended December 19, 1964. This brings the cumula-
tive total to 320 thus far in 1964. This year, as in pre-
vious years, the Mountain, South and North Central states
have reported over three-fourths of all cases although all
geographic regions have recorded some cases.
Although there has been a decline in the yearly
incidence of this disease since 1949, the number of cases
has remained essentially stable during the past few years.
(see graph opposite)
Seasonal peaks of tularemia are associated with
hunting and outdoor recreation periods and with high deer
fly and tick populations.

During the past decade, the reported incidence of the
principal venereal diseases has changed markedly with
each of the diseases exhibiting quite different charac-
teristics. In contrast to a reported threefold increase in
cases of primary and secondary syphilis, the incidence of
both chancroid and granuloma inguinale exhibited a com-
parable, proportionate decline. Gonorrhea cases in civil-
ians have increased only slightly.

Infectious Syphilis


Reported cases of infectious syphilis (primary and
secondary syphilis) increased less sharply during 1962
and 1963 than in the preceding 3 years (see table and
graph). The 22,251 cases reported in 1963 represents the
highest incidence since 1950 although only a relatively
slight increase over the 21,067 cases reported in 1962.
However, although an increasing incidence of syphilis
has been recorded both in the United States and elsewhere
in the world, changes during recent years in reporting and
investigative practices have undoubtedly served to magnify
the increase in incidence.
Forty-four percent of the infectious syphilis cases
reported in 1963 were among persons less than 25 years
of age and 15 percent of the cases were among persons
under 20.
Since 1955, reported cases of early latent syphilis
have remained relatively constant varying between 16,000
and 19,000 cases per year. Late and late latent syphilis
cases have decreased almost every year since 1943 when
more than a quarter of a million were reported. In 1963,
only 78,076 cases were recorded. This continuing decline
reflects the decline in the reservoir of old untreated cases.
Of the 4,031 cases of congenital syphilis reported
during 1963, only a small proportion were among infants
less than one year old; most, in fact, are cases in adults
born with syphilis years ago.



Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea cases have increased steadily each year
since 1957 except for 1962 when there was a slight fall-
off in reported cases. The 278,289 cases reported in 1963
was the largest number recorded since 1950. The highest
rate is found in the age group 20-24 years. Recent esti-
mates indicate that private physicians are reporting
approximately 11 percent of the gonorrhea actually treated.




Lymphogranuloma Venereum

The number of reported cases declined steadily from
1944 through 1958. The rise in cases observed since 1959

is due primarily to increased reports from the District of
Columbia. Beginning in 1960, one large clinic there has
instituted the routine use of the Frei complement fixation
test in the differential diagnosis of patients with peri-
rectal abscesses and/or fistulae-in-ano and this has
accounted for much of the increase.



Granuloma Inguinale
A total of 173 civilian cases of granuloma inguinale
was reported in the United States for the calendar year
1963. Reported cases of granuloma inguinale rose rapidly
during World War II and the following several years;


thereafter reported cases declined sharply. The graph
depicts the continuous decline during the past decade.


Chancroid
A total of 1,220 cases of chancroid was reported for
1963. After a peak shortly after World War II, the number
of reported cases declined sharply in the ensuing years.
Since 1957, the decline has been more gradual.
