Epidemiological survey for shigellosis in irpinia

, : Epidemiological survey for shigellosis in irpinia. Annali Sclavo 20(3): 291-304

In relation to a Salmonella outbreak which occurred in a hospital nursery in Avellino (Irpinia, Italy), stool cultures with bacterial sensitivity tests and field studies were performed on 30,601 healthy people of various ages and classes living in some towns of the Irpinia district. Shigella organisms, mostly S. sonnei, and salmonellae were detected in 0.52 and 3.93% respectively, in the entire population. In some groups culturing from stools and isolation were more frequent for shigellae (1.64%) than for salmonellae (0.30%). School children 5-15 yr old represented 80% of the Shigella healthy carriers. Followup stool cultures of these subjects were negative after treatment with Bactrim or Bactrim plus chloramphenicol.
