EPIDEMIOLOGIC NOTES


ENCEPHALITIS
The 1964 cumulative total of cases of primary infec-
tious encephalitis reached 2,878 the week ended November
7. There were 58 cases reported this week; 12 of these
were from New Jersey. The epidemic in Camden and
Burlington Counties, New Jersey and contiguous areas of
Pennsylvania has apparently ended and these cases
represent delayed reports.

RABIES
To date this year, only one case of human rabies has
been reported (see MMWR, Vol. 13, No. 38). This case


occurred in Minnesota and the biting animal was believed
to have been a skunk. Fifty-six cases of rabies in animals
were reported this week making the cumulative total thus
far this year 3,914. This is somewhat higher than the
3,300 cases reported through the past 45 weeks of 1963
and the 3,222 cases which represent the median number
of cases for the same period 1959-1963. The increased
number of cases of animal rabies is largely accounted for
by increased incidence of skunk rabies in the Midwest
and fox rabies in Virginia and Tennessee.
This week, a special report on the significance of
rabies in the Order Rodentia is included.

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


MARYLAND Squirrel Rabies


On October.21, 1964', the Bureau of Laboratories of
the M\ar land State Department of Health confirmed a case
of rabies in a gray squirrel by both fluorescent antibody
and Sellers tests. The squirrel came from a home in Anne
Arundel County which had adopted it during the first week
of October. It had been found with a wounded paw and
either bht or severely scratched nine people during the
two weeks before its death on October 17 or 18. The
body was discarded but recovered after one of the victims,
bitten on October 16, sought the advice of a physician.
All nine of the exposed individuals are now receiving


duck embryo origin rabies vaccine. The Department of
Game and Inland Fish is assisting in an animal trapping
program in the area. This is but the second case of
animal rabies found in Maryland during 1964. The first
was a fox from Montgomery County found infected during
September.
(Reported by Dr. J. Howard Beard, Anne Arundel County
Health Officer, Annapolis, Varyland and Dr. Kenneth L.
Crawford, Public Health Veterinarian, Division of Epi-
Jermology, Maryland State Department of Health, Balti-
more, Maryland.)


THE ROLE OF RODENTS IN THE EPIDEMIOLOGY
OF RABIES


A substantial number of the humans bitten by animals
receive their wounds from some member of the Order
Rodentia. In most of these cases the perplexing question
is whether or not the patient was exposed to rabies as a
result of the bite. The following data are given to assist
in the evaluation of this question.
The Order Rodentia is very large, both in numbers
of species and numbers of individuals. It includes many
species of rats and mice, both those found as pests in
human habitats and the many and varied wild varieties:
gophers, muskrats, voles, lemmings, porcupines, nutria,
and beaver. Also included are the many members of the
squirrel family: woodchucks (or groundhogs), marmots,
prairie dogs, tree squirrels, ground squirrels, and chip-
munks. Guinea pigs and hamsters are domesticated
rodents.
Because they frequently bite, occasionally even
when unprovoked,, large numbers of rodents are examined
for rabies by health laboratories each year. A review of
the rabies examinations done at the laboratories of three
State Health Departments during 1962 show that 21.5
percent of the animals examined were from the Order
Rodentia (Table 1). The rodent species most often found
biting man, and examined for rabies, are squirrels.
In spite of the relatively large number (Table 1) of
rodents examined for rabies very few are found infected.
For the 10 year period from 1954 through 1963, only 199
of the 47,211 laboratory confirmed cases of animal rabies
reported in the United States were rodents (Table 2).
This is 0.42 percent of the total number of rabid animals;
the 82 squirrels reported infected during this period
represents only 0.17 percent of the total. Thirteen different
rodent species were reported rabies-positive during this
10 year period (Table 3). In the number of cases reported,
squirrels were followed by woodchucks, rats, muskrats,
mice, gophers, chipmunks, hamsters, beaver, porcupines,
prairie dogs, flying squirrels and guinea pigs.

It should be noted that the number of reported cases
of rabies in rodents has decreased in recent years. This
is at least partly due to the fact that the traditional
examination of brain smears for Negri bodies has been
widely supplemented, or replaced, by the fluorescent
rabies antibody test. This more specific test has helped
to eliminate the necessity of differentiating between
Negri, and "Negri-like", inclusion bodies. Since in-
clusion bodies other than Negri bodies are frequently
found in animal brain smears it seems likely that many
false-positive diagnoses were made during the time


when this test was almost exclusively used as a diag-
nostic criteria.
Occasional cases of rabies do occur in rodents of
different species but certainly less frequently than even
the scant number of reported cases indicates. Rabies
infection in a rodent appears to be rare enough to merit
the conduction of virus isolation and serum neutralizing
identification tests on animal specimens suspected of
being rabies-positive by other tests.

DENGUE FEVER New Jersey


A case of dengue fever imported into New Jersey
from Venezuela has been reported. The victim was an
adult male Venezuelian who traveled by ship from
Venezuela to Philadelphia. En route, he developed a high
temperature of 1030 1040F, shaking chills, migrating
joint pains and a maculopapular rash. He was hospital-
ized in New Jersey in May and made a complete recovery.
Serological specimens were positive for Group B arbovirus
by complement fixation and hemagglutination -inhibition
tests. This probably represented a case of dengue fever
contracted in Venezuela where it was epidemic at that
time.

(Reported by W. J. Dougherty, M.D., Director, Division
of Preventive Disease Control Programs, New Jersey
State Department of Health).




Editor's Note: During the period May 31 to August 9,
10,660 cases of dengue were reported in Venezuela.
(Weekly Epidemiological Report of the Pan American
Sanitary Bureau, September 9, 1964)
