PROVISIONAL INFORMATION ON SELECTED NOTIFIABLE DISEASES IN THF UNITED STATES AND ON

BOTULISM


California reported 3 cases of botulism, 2 fatal, for
the week ended May 16. This brings the national total to
9 cases thus far in 1964. For the comparable period of
1963, 5 cases were reported.
The 3 cases occurred in San lose and involved a
married couple, both 28, and the wife's 54-year-old uncle.
The group shared a noon meal, Thursday, May 14, which
included a home-preserved product either chili beans or
green peppers).
Saturday night, May 16, the uncle died suddenly; a
stroke was the suspected cause of death. This diagnosis,
however, was not confirmed at autopsy. On Sunday, May I',
the wife experienced respiratory difficulty, diplopia and
dysphagia. She was hospitalized, but died Monday night.


On Sunday afternoon, the husband became nauseated, and
later experienced diplopia and dysphagia. He received
bivalent botulinus antitoxin; a tracheotomy was performed.
His condition is critical.
The couple's 4 children, aged 2 to O, did not ear the
horre-preserved product; none has become ill.
Laboratory studies of the remaining food are in
progress.
All 9 cases of botulism reported in 1964 are related
to home-processed foods.

VIRAL HEPATITIS 1st Quarter 1964

During the first quarter of 1964, a total of 12,118
cases of viral hepatitis was reported. This figure repre-
sents a decrease of 13 per cent over the comparable
period of 196,3 it reflects the continuation of a longer
term downward trend which began in 1961 (see figure 1).
A more gradual decline in the number of reported cases.
however, has followed the 1961 peak than followed the
previous peak year, 1953 (not shown).
During the first 3 months of 1964, Ne% England
experienced the highest attack rate of any geographic
area I13.1 cases per 100.000 population). Although
Maine's attack rate (50.9 per 100.000) is the nation's
highest, this Stare reported 39 per cent fewer cases
during the first quarter of 1964 than during the corre-
sponding period of 1063. Vermont and New Hampshire
have the second and fourth highest attack rates (43 6 and
19.4 per 110.000, respectively); both represent increases
from the comparable quarter of 1963.
The following states also showed major increases
in the number of cases reported during the first quarter
of this ecar as compared to that of 1% I

The seasonal peak for hepatitis occurred during
February (figure 1). The notable similarity in seasonal
distribution of this disease in the United States and in
Canada is shown in the graph on the opposite page.
It would appear that a continuing decline in the
prevalence of viral hepatitis in the United Stares may
be expected during the coming months.

SCOMBROID FISH POISONING CALIFORNIA
A mother and her daughter experienced scombroid fish
poisoning, an unusual type of food-borne disease, within
0 minutes after eating pan-fried albacore.
Fifteen minutes after eating the albacore, pan-fried in
her home, the mother developed headache, urticaria, edema,
rash, dizziness, and nausea. Thity-five minutes later,
her daughter commenced to experience similar symptoms of
headache, rash, edema, urticaria, and a tingling sensation.
The father, who had also consumed some of the same fish,
remained symptom-free except for mild diarrhea 3 hours
later. A:l recovered.
The suspect fish was a 22 lb. albacore. Caught early
in the morning, it had hung in a fish bag on the outside of
the boat until early evening when it was placed in cold
water in an ice chest for the trip home. It was too large to
place in a refrigerator and was, therefore, kept outside for
the night (low temperature 9c''Fl. The temperature rose to
86F the following morning: the fisherman watered the

albacore with his garden hose. At ioon, it was brought to
the victims' home, where it was cleaned and placed in the
freezer. About one month later, the fish was removed,
allowed to thaw on the kitchen counter, and was pan-
fried 6 hours later.
Bacteriologic studies were not reported. The rapidity
of onset and the symptoms, however, indicated scombroid
fish poisoning.
(Reported by Murray Cooper, R.S., and Doris Husman,
P.H.N.. Pasadena Department of Public Health, and
Philip K. Condit, M.D., Chief, Bureau of Communicable
Diseases. California State Department of Health).
Editor's Note:
Although cases such as these are customarily termed
scombroidd fish poisoning" 1 (see MMWR, Vol. 13, page
30), Dr. Lionel Farber, Hooper Foundation, University of


California, notes: "Even though most of the fish impli-
cated in California 'food poisoning' outbreaks of this
nature were Scombroids, including tunas, mackeral, yellow-
tail and bonita, we feel that they are all examples of
bacterial food spoilage and should be so Jesignated. Tire
name 'Scombroid poisoning' implies an inherent toxic
property of these fish and that really fresh samples could
also give rise to the effects. However, what is involved is
poor handling, lack of proper refrigeration and conditions
enabling various proteinaceous food spoiling bacteria to
grow, including organisms of the Pseudomonas, Achro-
mobacter and Proteus genera." 2
