  1. Paediatric, invasive pneumococcal disease in Switzerland, 1985-1994.

    Article - En anglais

    Background Cost effective use of new vaccines against pneumococcal disease in children requires detailed information about the local epidemiology of pneumococcal infections.

    Methods Data on 393 culture-confirmed cases of invasive pneumococcal infection in children (<17 years) hospitalized in Swiss paediatric clinics were collected retrospectively for the years 1985-1994.

    Results Meningitis (42%) was most frequent, followed by pneumonia (28%) and bacteraemia (26%). The overall annual incidence was 2.7 cases per 100 000 children<17 years old and 11 cases per 100 000 children<2 years old.

    Annual incidence rates were stable over the study period.

    Lethality was high for meningitis (8.6%) and bacteraemia (8.9%). A history of basal skull fracture was reported in 3.3% of children with pneumococcal meningitis.

    Residence in a rural region was associated with an increased risk of pneumococcal infection (relative risk=1.45. 95% confidence interval : 1.01-2.00).

    Conclusions Paediatric, invasive pneumococcal disease seems to be less frequent in Switzerland than in other European and non-European countries.

    This may be due to differences in diagnostic strategies and lower frequency of risk factors such as the use of day care.

    Children with a history of basal skull fracture are at increased risk for pneumococcal meningitis. (...)
