Final iirological and histological examination of
specimens by the Laboratory Branch at the Communicable
Disease Center from the case pre\ ously reported as
smallpox (MMS R, Vol. 14, Nos. 20, 21, and 23) in Wash-
ington, D. C. has failed to confirm earlier findings that
led to the statement that aariola virus had been isolated.
When the original %esicular fluid was inoculated onto the
chorioallantoic membranes of eggs. distinct "pocks" were
observed. Continued testing, however, showed that these
pocks were non-specific, occurring irregularly on the

identified as varicella (chickenpo\) virus. Antibody titra-
tions of the patient's acute and convalescent sera showed
an antibody rise from 1:8 to 1:_'56 against %aricella \irus
and no antibody rise against \acclnia virus.
The previous\ reported diagnosis of smallpox in


aashingron, D.C.. has therefore been amended and the

EPIDEMIOLOGIC NOTES AND REPORTS

MUMPS IN ST. GEORGE Pribilof Islands, Alaska


There has been a total of 107 cases of mumps among
the 210 native inhabitants of St. George, Alaska, since
May of this year. St. George is one of the Pribilof Islands
located in the Bering Sea, approximately 250 miles from
the mainland of Alaska and accessible only by ship. The
last time mumps occurred on the Island was in 1907.
The first case was in a 15-Near-old girl \who left
school in Oregon on Mah 1 and developed parotid %well-
ing on May 26, 3 da.s after arrival at St. George. Another
possible source of the epidemic was a 17-, ear-old girl who
had a right-sided parotid swelling from hMay 3-.8 while at
school on the mainland of Alaska. On Ma, '7, following
her return to St. George, -he developed a swelling of the
left parotid. The next case was reported on June 15,
followed by 6 oiher- that month. 76 cases in July, and 22


cases during the first 13 days of August. Only one of the
three cases occurring within the 4 weeks after the two
schoolgirls became ill had an, direct contact with them,
although they may ha e attended church or a movie at the
same time. (Figure 1)
The oldest patient was 56 years old; there were no
cases among the 14 residents who were living at the time
of the 1907 outbreak, only 3 of whom recalled having had
mumps. Seventeen younger persons had had mumps while
li ing off the island, mostly while at school or in the
military ser ice. Among those presumed susceptible,
attack rates hae been highest in the 10-14 age group
193%) and lowest in the 0-4 age group (37'.). In other age
groups less than 55 years of age, attack rates arebetween
50% and 69%. (Table 1 on page 684.)

MUMPS IN ST. GEORGE Pribilof Islands, Alaska
(Continued from page 278)


There have been 12 cases of orchitis among the 48
males with mumps. Of the 18 boys less than 10 years of
age afflicted with mumps, two had orchitis, aged 2 years
and 3 years respectively. Other complications have in-
cluded meningoencephalitis and thyroiditis, and several
patients had symptoms compatible with pancreatitis and
oophoritis. The true incidence of these complications
could not be determined.
Hyperimmune globulin was given to susceptible adults
on August 4, but it is not yet possible to determine if this
has reduced the incidence of the disease or its complica-
tions. At present no cases have occurred on the neighbor-
ing island of St. Paul.
