TEXAS

Harris County
Through September 8, a total of 629 suspected cases
of St. Louis Encephalitis, including 27 deaths, have been
reported from Harris County (Houston), Texas. (See
previous reports, MMWR, Vol. 13, pp. 290 and 302)
The epidemic curve for the 609 cases with known
date of onset is shown above. A peak in incidence appears
to have been reached during the week ended August 29.
The overall attack rate is 50.6 per 100,000. The age
specific attack rates, as shown below, are of a similar
order of magnitude for age groups less than 60 years.
There then follows a progressive rise with advancing
age. The attack rate among the non-white population
(55.3 per 100,000) is somewhat greater than the rate in
the white population (45.0 per 100,000).

The 27 deaths represent a case fatality ratio of
4 percent; 25 of the deaths were in persons over 50 years
of age.
Sera from 317 suspected cases have been studied to
date. Of these, 11 demonstrate confirmatory evidence
(rising titer) of recent-infection by St. Louis Encephalitis
(SLE) virus, 141 show presumptive evidence (high HAI
titer in acute specimens) of SLE infection and 12 are
negative. In addition 153 sera are incompletely studied
and considered inconclusive.
Isolations of St. Louis Encephalitis virus have been
obtained at the Texas State Health Department Laboratory
and at CDC from a wild bird (blue jay) and from pools of
the mosquito, Culer Quinquefasciatus, collected in Harris
County.
(Reported by Charles A. Pigford, M.D., Director of Public
Health, Houston, Van C. Tipton, M.D., Director, Com-
municable Disease Division, Texas State Department of
Health, and a team from the Communicable Disease
Center.)


South Plains Area
Through September 8, 51 cases, including 4 deaths,
of suspected encephalitis have been reported from the
south plains area of Texas. This represents an increase

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report


of 10 cases and 1 death over the number reported last
week (See MMWR, Vol. 13, pp. 291 and 305). Hale County
accounts for 58 of the 51 reported cases. Laboratory
studies to date have implicated Western Encephalitis
virus as the principal responsible agent.
A sustained high incidence is occurring; during the
weeks ended August 15, 22 and 29, 13, 11 and 15 cases
respectively were reported.
As seen in the table below, the overall attack rate
is now 144 per 100,000. Tie highest rate, 383 per 100,000,
is found in the 0-4 age groups.

Western Encephalitis virus has been isolated from

Laboratory, Greeley, Colorado. Isolations of Western
Encephalitis virus from Culex tarsalis mosquito pools
were reported previously.

KENTUCKY

Danville
Twenty-three cases of suspected encephalitis,
including one death, were reported from Danville, Kentucky.
Laboratory studies have tentatively identified St. Louis
Encephalitis virus as the responsible agent.
The earliest case experienced an onset of illness on
July 12; most, however, occurred during late August and
early September:

Since July 29, a total of 26 cases of suspected en-
cephalitis, including 2 deaths, have been reported from
scattered areas in southern Illinois. Nine of the cases
and both deaths occurred in McLeansboro, Hamilton
County (see MMWR, Vol. 13, page 305). All of the
McLeansboro patients were over 70 years of age; cases
in other areas range from 6 to 82 years.
Serologic confirmation of infection with St. Louis
Encephalitis virus has been obtained in 4 of the
McLeansboro cases thus far.
In addition to the human cases, 31 cases of horse
encephalitis have been reported during the past 2 weeks.
These cases are geographically dispersed throughout
the state. Further studies are in progress.


(Reported by Norman J. Rose, M.D., Chief, Bureau of
Epidemiology, Illinois Department of Public Health, and
a team from CDC).

The age distribution of the cases ranges from 4 to
89 years. For the 20 patients with known ages, 6 are under
20 years-of-age, 10 are between 20 and 59 years, and 4
are age 70 or older. The sex distribution is approximately
equal. The only fatality occurred in an 89 year old female.
Clinically, symptoms of severe, persistent headache
and high fever have been characteristic of most cases.
Additional symptoms have included vomiting, coma, and
slurred speech. Cerebrospinal fluid examinations have
revealed pleocytosis and elevated CSF protein levels in
cases studied. Complement fixation studies conducted
at the Kentucky State Health Department Laboratories
revealed presumptive serologic evidence of St. Louis
Encephalitis virus infection in sera from 2 of the cases
studied to date.
(Reported by Dr. Russell E. Tcau:ue, Commissioner of
Health, Kentucky State Department of Health.)

COLORADO
An additional 13 cases of suspected encephalitis
have been reported in Colorado (See MMWR, Vol. 13,
pg. 305). This brings to 24 the number of cases which
have occurred since August 1.There have been no deaths.
The cases have been reported from 9 counties in
separate areas of the State; 6 cases each have been
recorded in Fort Collins and Adams Counties. The cases
range in age from one to 65 years.
Sera from 3 cases have demonstrated significant HI
antibody titer rises to Western Encephalitis virus; 2 of
these cases occurred in 8 and 18-year-old males in Adams
County (near Denver), the other in a 9-year-old girl in
Weld County (near Greeley).
Serologic evidence of infection by St. Louis Enceph-
alitis virus has been demonstrated in an 18-year-old
male patient in Jefferson County (southwest of Denver).
(Reported by Dr. C. S. Mollohan, Chief, Division of
Epidemiology, Colorado State Department of Public
Health and a team from CDC.)
