EPIDEMIOLOGIC NOTES


Botulism
A total of 22 cases of botulism has been reported so
far this year compared to 47 cases last year. The largest
epidemic of this disease this year was in Herndon, Kansas,
where 7 persons were stricken after eating home-canned
dill pickles.

This year no cases have been attributed to com-
mercially processed food as contrasted to last year when
cases were traced to commercially canned tuna fish and
and vacuum packed smoked chubs.

The graph opposite shows the yearly incidence of
botulism in the United States since 1899.

Although Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever was first
discovered in 1896 in the mountain states, it was not
until 1931 that it was identified in the Eastern United
States. Since that year, cases have been reported from
many areas of the country but primarily from the Eastern
States. The yearly reported incidence has ranged approxi-
mately from 200 to 600 cases with the highest total at 596
cases in 1947. Since 1949, there has been a gradual
decline i-n yearly incidence and 216 cases were reported
in 1963.

Geographic Incidence
The name Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever suggests
that this disease is more prevalent in or limited to the
Rocky Mountain area, but neither is the case. A spot map
is shown in which all counties with one or more cases
reported in 1963 are outlined. The majority of cases are
clustered around the Appalachian Mountain chain. In 1962
and 1963, Virginia and North Carolina both reported a
larger number of cases than any other States. The South
Atlantic region reported 106 cases or 49 percent of the
national total in 1963 contrasted to the Rocky Mountain
region with only 18 cases or 8 percent of the national total.
The tables presented on p.455 show the geographic
distribution of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever by number
of cases, percent of national total and case rate per
100,000 population. During the period 1935-39, the annual
case rate was 4.58 per 100,000 population in the Mountain
States but this has been dropping steadily so that during
the past decade the annual case rate in the South Atlantic
States has exceeded that of the Mountain States.
Seasonal Pattern
Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever is distinctly seasonal
in its occurrence, with highest incidence during the late
spring and summer months. Weekly reporting of this disease
began in 1962; on the basis of information received by the


Communicable Disease Center since that time, it is shown
that the peak incidence of month of onset occurs in mid-
summer. The distribution of the 1963 cases by month of
report is shown below.

Mortality
The number of deaths attributed to this disease
annually since 1949 as recorded by the National Vital
Statistics Division are listed in the following table:

The average case-fatality ratio is 5.7 deaths per 100
cases and has remained relatively constant over the years.







Age-Sex Distribution

Age and sex data of reported cases for 1962-63 were
obtained on 300 patients. These data demonstrate that the
under 15-year age group has the highest attack rate with
more than 60 percent of the cases in this group.
