  1. Childhood brucellosis in Israel.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Brucellosis has become a major medical problem in Israel particularly in the Muslim Arab population.

    Methods

    Eighty-eight children with acute brucellosis are described.

    Sixty-seven were studied retrospectively during 1987 through 1988, and 21 children were studied prospectively during 1989 through 1992.

    Epidemiologic, clinical and laboratory features were evaluated, and the outcome of 4 antimicrobial regimens are compared.

    Results

    Although the clinical manifestation varied, the classical triad of fever (91%), arthralgia or arthritis (83%) and hepato-and/or splenomegaly (63%) characterized most patients.

    Sixty-one percent of the children had elevated liver enzymes.

    Brucella melitensis was isolated from 61% of blood cultures.

    The relapse rate in patients who were treated with monotherapy (doxycycline) was 43% compared with 14% with regimens of combined therapy with rifampin and doxycycline, streptomycin and doxycycline or rifampin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (P<0.049).

    Eleven children (33%) who were treated for 3 weeks had relapse compared with 1 patient (3.5%) treated for 4 weeks or longer.

    The total relapse or reinfection rate was 20%. All patients with relapse recovered after a second course of antibiotic therapy.

    During the 2 years of follow-up one child progressed to chronic osteomyelitis.
