Corynebacterium diphtheriae shown in healthy patients

Corynebacterium diphtheriae shown in healthy patients

Zeitschrift fuer Klinische Medizin 45(19): 1693-1695

No case of diphtheria has been reported in the GDR between 1974 and 1986. Since 1986 ten sporadic cases occurred in adults. The source of infection remained unknown. We collected throat and nasal swabs from 400 persons in order to find out carriers of C. diphtheriae. Nontoxigenic strains were isolated in two cases. Importation and spread of C. diphtheriae is possible at any time. Trainings should be strengthened to improve the knowledge on the clinical and microbiological diagnosis of diphtheria. Furthermore, it is necessary to maintain the high level of immunization coverage. Re-immunization of adults has to be taken in consideration.
