Investigations in the problem of diarrhoea in the Melut district, South Sudan (1981-1982)


, : Investigations in the problem of diarrhoea in the Melut district, South Sudan (1981-1982). Journal of Hygiene, Epidemiology, Microbiology, and Immunology 31(4 Suppl): 486-489

Studies of diseases associated with diarrhoea in the Melut district of South Sudan in the years 1981-1982 showed amoebic dysentery and Rota-virus to predominate, whereby according to our previous results Yersinia, Campylobacter, Shigella and Salmonella infections also play a role. In addition other parasitological, bacterial and viral-infections are presumed.
