Epidemiological aspects of acute viral hepatitis a in swedish travelers to endemic areas


Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Diseases 17(1): 5-10
Epidemiological aspects of acute viral hepatitis a in swedish travelers to endemic areas
A decreased incidence of hepatitis A (HA) in Swedish travellers to the northern Mediterranean area was observed after 1972, from 1/3000 travellers who did not receive .gamma.-globulin in the period 1970-72 to 1/14,200 travellers between 1979 and 1981 and 1/20,000 travellers in 1982. No such decrease in incidence was observed in travellers going to the southern Mediterranean area. Differences in the incidences of HA in travellers to individual countries in southern Europe were also noticed. The risk of Swedish travellers to remote destinations, such as tropical African and Asia, contracting HA is still very high, being 1/150-100 travellers not receiving .gamma.-globulin. In was observed that years with high incidences of HA in travellers to certain destinations also saw increased incidences of HA in Sweden.
