  1. Cat-scratch disease : Connecticut, 1992-1993.

    Article - En anglais

    A prospective population-based surveillance system was established to characterize the epidemiology of cat-scratch disease (CSD) among residents of Connecticut who were reported to the state health department with a diagnosis of suspected CSD.

    During 1992 and 1993,246 persons met the case definition, for an average statewide annual incidence of 3.7/100,000 persons.

    The median age of patients with CSD was 14 years (range, 1-64), and 52% were female.

    The age-specific attack rate was highest among persons<10 years of age (9.3/100,000) and decreased with increasing age.

    Symptoms in addition to adenopathy were noted by 74% of case-patients.

    Eleven percent of all case-patients were hospitalized.

    There were no deaths.

    Most patients with clinically diagnosed CSD developed an immunologic response to Bartonella species.

    Our data suggest that although CSD is primarily a disease of younger persons, the age spectrum is wider than was commonly appreciated.
