EPIDEMIOLOGIC NOTES


TETANUS


A total of 5 cases of tetanus was reported for the
week ended November 17. This brings to 249 the cumula-
tive total for 1964; for the comparable period of 1963,
251 cases were reported.
In 1963 there were 325 cases of tetanus reported in
the United States. Although cases were reported from all
areas of the country, the disease was more frequently
reported in the southern States. Thirty-eight of the 1963
cases occurred in children under 1 year of age and 137
cases (42 percent) were in the age group, 50 years and
over.
The graph depicts reported tetanus in the United
States during the years 1947-1963. Tetanus incidence has
declined slowly despite extensive immunization, par-
ticularly of children.

EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS



SALMONELLOSIS Iowa


From 12 to 45 hours after a picnic dinner in Clay
County, 11 of the 24 in attendance began to experience
symptoms of gastroenteritis. The median incubation
period was 20 hours. The symptoms included nausea,
vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, headache, back-
ache, and fever. Two patients required hospitalization.
All recovered after 2 to 14 days of illness; the median
duration of illness was 6 days.
All eleven ill ate deviled eggs; the 13 who remained
well did not (see table below).

Eight eggs were
picnic, and stored in


hard-boiled the night before the
the cupboard overnight. The fol-


lowing morning, the egg yolks were removed and mixed


with salad dressing, then replaced in the sliced egg
whites. They were covered in a plastic dish until con-
sumed at the picnic.
Salmonella manhattan was recovered from the stool
cultures of 4 of the victims including the woman who
prepared the eggs. They were the only patients cultured.
The food handler's son, aged 10, did not eat the eggs;
his culture was negative for the organisms. A 2-year-old
daughter who did not eat the eggs was asymptomatic, but
her culture yielded S. manhattan. She had neither recent
illness nor a past history of salmonellosis.
None of the food served at the picnic was available
for laboratory examination at the time of the investi-
gation. The eggs used for the picnic had been obtained
from the farm across the road from the food handler; the
farm belonged to the food handler's parents. Cultures of
eggs, chickens, and pets (taken one month after the
picnic) were negative for salmonella.
(Reported by Ralph H. Heeren, M.D., Director, and Stan-
ley L. Hendricks, D.V.M., Associate Director, Division
of Preventable Diseases, Iowa State Department of
Health.)
Editor's Note: S. manhattan comprised one percent of all
salmonella serotypes isolated from human sources during
1963. Isolations of this serotype were reported to the
Communicable Disease Center by 28 States, from coast
to coast.


TYPHOID FEVER Aboard French Merchant Vessel


A case of typhoid fever in a French seaman aboard
a merchant vessel docked at Duluth, Minnesota was re-
ported by Minnesota State Department of Health authori-
ties. On August 9, a French seaman became ill on board
ship with chills, fever, myalgia, back pain, and headache.
The ship docked at Duluth on August 12 and the seaman
was taken to a local hospital. Blood and stool cultures
subsequently grew Salmonella typhi phage type E-l.
Epidemiologic investigation indicated that the ves-
sel, with a complement of 36 people, had been in Ham-
burg, Germany on July 18 and had stored fresh water and
food. On July 22, the vessel docked for 24 hours in
Casablanca where the crew bought a basket of raw shell-
fish which was consumed by 10 of the men. During the
next 6 days there were 14 cases of diarrhea and abdominal
cramps without nausea, vomiting, fever, or chills. All of


the 10 men who had eaten the raw shellfish experienced
these symptoms. There was no more illness on board
ship until August 9 when the crewman who was subse-
quently diagnosed as having typhoid fever became ill.
He was one of the 10 who had eaten the shellfish.
All of the remaining crew and officers had stool
cultures but no pathogenic organisms were uncovered.
The hospitalized crewman was treated with chlorampheni-
col and was asymptomatic within 3 days; however, his
stool cultures were still positive for S. typhi at that
time. A 2-week follow-up revealed no further infections
of the crew, and the vessel was cleared to proceed to
Rotterdam.

Disease Control, Minnesota Department of Health, and an
EIS Officer.)

POLIOMYELITIS Jamaica


An outbreak ot clinical poliomyelitis occurred in
urban Kingston, Jamaica beginning September 2, 1964.
Since that date, 23 cases of poliomyelitis have been re-
ported, all in children under age 3, with the exception of
2 cases age 6. Only one of the victims had been pre-
t\ously vaccinated having had one dose of trivalent oral
vaccine in 1962. There have been 3 fatalities; Type I
poliovirus was isolated from one of these fatal cases.
Trivalent oral polio vaccine is being administered in
an effort to halt the epidemic. There have been no new
cases reported since November -.
