EPIDEMIOLOGICAL REPORTS


PLAGUE Arizona
A detailed clinical account is presented of the fatal
case of plague reported on page 121, of Vol. 12 of the
M MTWR.
The victim was a 28-\ear-old, unmarried, Navajo
sheep herder who lircd 5 miles north of louck, Arizona,
which is located on U. lligh ay 66. On December 1, he
drove his sheep to a pasture where thev grazed through
IDccumber 5.
On December 5, he experienced the abrupt onset of
chills, headache, abdominal pains, green, waerry diarrhea,
and frequent expulsion of blood-tinged vomitus. He also
complained of pain under his left arm. His symptoms per-
sisted and he was driven to the Gallup, New Mexico,
Indian Hospital. December 7.
At 11 a.m., he was seen in the out-patient department.
His vital signs were: temperature %.8"F., blood pressure
1L2 88, and pulse 130. Positive physical findings in-
cluded subjective abdominal tenderness, moderate guard-
ing without rebound, and decreased bowel sounds. The
initial clinical impression was gastroenteritis, with the
possibility of surgical abdomen.
On the surgical ward at 2:30 p.m., his vital signs
were: temperature 98.80F., blood pressure 80 "60, pulse
14if. and respirations 36. He was described as alert,
restless, and dvspneic. He stated he had difficulty breath-
ing. oxygen was administered. A large, painful, solitary
node in the left axilla was noted on repeat physical ex-
amination. The overlying tissues were indurated without
pitting or eryrhema. Repeat abdominal examination re-
vealed increased guarding on the right.
His initial laboratory tests were: hemoglobin 16.6,
hematocrit 50, white count 105,000, differential poly-
morphs 64, bands 22, lymphs 13, and monocytes 1. Nu-
merous bacteria (5 per white blood cell) were noted on the
peripheral blood smear. Gram stain of the peripheral
blood revealed numerous pleomorphic gram negative rods.
His chest X-ray was interpreted as normal, his abdominal
film showed less than normal gas, an electrocardiogram
showed sinus rachvcardia, and his electrolytes were:
CO- 28.6, Na 134, C1 87, and K 5.2.
At 1:45 p.m., his temperature rose to 104.6"F. It was
learned at this time that he frequently killed rabbits for
food; he reported having killed and torn apart cottontail
rabbits for his dog 3 days prior to onset. Diagnosis of
gram negative septicemia,probably Pasteurella tularensis,
was made.
At 6 p.m., his temperature rose to 106.2"; his vital
signs were: blood pressure "6 '0, pulse 120, and respira-
tions 40. Despite treatment with streptomycin and chloro-
mvcetin. he expired 8 hours after he was first seen in
the out-patient department.
At post-mortem examination, the only skin lesions
present were a scratch on the lateral aspect of the left


arm and an abrasion of the right thumb. Positive autopsy
finding. included bilateral pleural effusions, heavily
congested lungs, gra Irothy fluid within the trachea and
bronchi, which had iniccied mucosa, submucosal gastric
pLrechiae. and black, liquid stool in the rectum. Lymph
nodes from the left axilla measured 2x2 centimeters and
were hemorrhagic and necrotic.
Pre-morrem blood cultures and bone marrow revealed
Pasteurtila prstrs and pn, imooccus type VI. Post-
mortem cultures of 1 mph node, liver, and spleen also
demonstrated both organisms. A bone marrow smear was
interpreted as demonstrating a leukemoid response.
Hospital and family contacts were treated prophylac-
tically with streptomycin and sulfonamide.
No further cases have been suspect or diagnosed.

Editor's .ote. The co-existence of another organism with
P. pestus, in thts case pneumococci Type VI, is an in-
teresting phenomena which has been observed in at least
one previous case of plague and which may mask the
diagnosis of plague. In 1961, when 3 cases of plague
were reported, post-mortem bacteriologic studies in one
of the 2 fatal cases revealed the presence of hemolyric
streptococcus Group A in addition to P. pests.



MUSHROOM POISONING Colifomin
Two San Joaquin County children experienced mus-
carine poisoning within I hours after ingesting dried mush-
rooms. Between 2 and I hours after eating the dried mush-
rooms, which had been added to freshly opened tomato
soup, a 16-year-old boy and his 3-year-old sister became
acutely ill. They experienced vomiting, diarrhea, hema-
temesis, melena, abdominal cramps, fever, vasomotor flush,
bradycardia, and hyporension. They were hospitalized and
treated with atropine; both children recovered within
48 hours.
The suspect mushrooms were part of a larger non-
commercial stock picked locally and used by the family
during the past year without known ill effects.
A sample of remaining mushroom was described as a
member of the Roletus genus; further identification was not
possible because of the condition of rhe sample. Certain
species of the Boulrts genus have been incriminated in
previous mushroom poisonings.
